Potential Impact of 2013 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule on RDs

Since Congress has not yet taken action to eliminate sustainable growth rate formula-driven cuts, it is possible that the 26.5 percent payment cut under current law for the 2013 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule will take effect January 1, at least temporarily.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced that, if Congress does adjourn without addressing this issue, claims for services provided to Medicare beneficiaries after December 31 will not be held. These claims will be processed under the normal 14-day cycle required by law and payments will be based on the new, lower fee schedule. CMS will notify Medicare providers on or before January 11, with more information about the status of Congressional action to avert the negative update and next steps. Given the potential impact on practice revenue in early January, registered dietitians who are Medicare providers may want to avoid scheduling Medicare clients for appointments in at least the first half of January in the hopes of averting reduced payments for these services.

For more information on the 2013 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, see the November issue of MNT Provider.
