Are you aware of the 2021 Medicare fee schedule update?

On December 27, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 modified the Calendar Year (CY) 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule to:

Provided a 3.75% increase in Medicare Physician Fee Schedule payments for CY 2021

Suspended the 2% payment adjustment (sequestration) through March 31, 2021

Reinstated the 1.0 floor on the work Geographic Practice Cost Index through CY 2023

Delayed implementation of the inherent complexity add-on code for evaluation and management services (G2211) until CY 2024.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has recalculated the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule to:

Provided a 3.75% increase in Medicare Physician Fee Schedule payment rates and conversion factor to reflect these changes.

Sam, thank you for all the valuable information! I am looking for the Medicare fee $ allowed for CA, it would appear that it has increased.

Thank you,
