Academy Submits Comments on 2013 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

The Academy has submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services regarding CMS' proposed rule, "Medicare Program – Revisions to Payment Policies Under the Physician Fee Schedule" under Part B for 2013. The Academy's comments were based on input from the Coding and Coverage Committee, Legislative and Public Policy Committee and several dietetic practice groups.

The Academy's comments address proposals from CMS to add Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Obesity to the list of Medicare telehealth services, new care coordination codes and changes in the Physician Quality Reporting System. Under PQRS, registered dietitians who are Medicare providers are eligible to receive bonus payments for satisfactory reporting of quality measures. Starting in 2015, the bonus payments will convert to payment reductions.
