Lawmakers to CMS: Nix multiple-procedures pay cut
Modern Physician

Sixty members of Congress have urged the CMS to drop plans for a proposed cut in physician payments when similar clinical activities are performed at the same facility on the same day.

The expansion of multiple-procedure payment reductions and a 25% cut in the so-called technical component for “potentially redundant direct practice expense inputs” was proposed earlier this year, and a final rule is expected in November.
