2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule

The 2019 MPFS (Medicare Physician Fee Schedule) proposed rule includes potential changes to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System, as well as to this year’s participation options and requirements for the Alternative Payment Model.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have proposed a slight increase in the MPFS conversion factor, which reflects an update required by MACRA. This update to the MPFS policy also includes changes to the relative value units for specific medical services, and identifies potentially misvalued codes.
