In early September, ACEP submitted a comprehensive response to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) Calendar Year (CY) 2023 Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) and Quality Payment Program (QPP) proposed regulation. The PFS and QPP regulation is the major annual regulation that impacts Medicare payments for physicians and other health care practitioners for the next calendar year. The rates included in the PFS often serve as the basis for which many private payors revise their reimbursement levels. The reg also includes updates to the Quality Payment Program (QPP)—the quality performance program established by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). ACEP’s 52-page response addresses Medicare payment cuts, documentation requirements, critical care, observation services, and more. CMS must review all public comments, including ACEP’s response, and issue a final regulation implementing policies for CY 2023 by Nov. 1, 2022.
