The final version of the 2011 Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule was released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Monday. The RVU values for sleep medicine codes are unchanged from the display copy of the Final Rule. The AASM is reviewing the Final Rule in detail and will provide members with updated information shortly.

The AASM has prepared a fact sheet for members that explains payment for sleep codes based on information published in the Final Rule. The fact sheet details the current national RVU and payment information for sleep codes as well as payment information for sleep codes effective January 1, 2011. The fact sheet also includes information on how to calculate the payment for your locality.
