Doctors seeking $200M owed by Medicare
Doctors are asking the Medicare agency to quickly explain how it will dole out $200 million in overdue reimbursements following “a highly disruptive year" for physician payments.
Healthcare reform enacted this year called on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to reimburse doctors retroactively to Jan. 1, 2010, on several provisions, including extending the floor for a Medicare payment scale used to determine relative costs of practicing medicine in specific locations. Some states were set to receive significant increases due to changes in the scale, according to the Friday letter signed by more than 100 physicians groups.
