Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, July 10, 2008
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has proposed new efforts to promote access to higher quality and more efficient healthcare delivered by the nation's physicians to people with Medicare under the 2009 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, according to a CMS release. Among the changes are proposals to reimburse for telephone or e-mail encounters, and a rule to allow more gainsharing.
