21% Medicare Cut Reversed Temporarily

Congress has reversed the 21% cut put into action last Friday and have now imposed a TEMPORARY 2.2% increase. Claims with June dates of service which were processed with the 21% reduced fee will be automatically reprocessed within two weeks (allegedly, don’t hold your breath) and claims send with the charge amount lower then the 2.2% increase will be paid at that lowered rate. Raise your fees to reflect the greater amount or face the challenge of calling on each one individually.

Remember claims were held and will be held again until the increase can be correctly applied. Try to budget accordingly.
