CMS has proposed revisions to the Physician Fee Schedule for 2019, to reduce the burden of paperwork and allow clinicians to spend more time providing patient care. A listening session has been scheduled, to explain three key provisions from the PFS proposed rule:

  • Streamlining Evaluation and Management (E/M) payment and reducing clinician burden
  • Advancing virtual care
  • Continuing to improve the Quality Payment Program (QPP) to reduce clinician burden, focus on outcomes, and promote interoperability

CMS staff will also respond to questions from the public, during the listening session.

We encourage you to review the PFS proposed rule or the PFS proposed rule fact sheet, prior to the call. We also encourage you to review the QPP proposed rule or the QPP proposed rule fact sheet.

The listening session will be held on Wednesday, August 22nd, 1:30 – 3:00 PM EDT.
