ACEP submitted a robust set of comments responding to the calendar year 2019 Medicare Part B physician fee schedule (PFS) and Quality Payment Program (QPP) proposed rule. This rule included numerous policies that impact physician payments under Medicare, most notably a proposal that would streamline documentation requirements and create a blended payment rate for office/outpatient evaluation and management (E/M) level 2 through 5 codes. However, the proposal does not initially impact the emergency medicine E/M code set. The rule also proposes a set of policies related to the third year of the QPP, the performance program established by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act.
