Explanation:
...improve the accuracy of payments to physicians for the services they furnish to Medicare beneficiaries. The proposed notice includes substantial increases for "evaluation and management" services, that is, time and effort that physicians spend with patients in evaluating their condition, and advising and assisting them in managing their health.It's time to increase Medicare's payment rates for physicians to spend time with their patients," said CMS Administrator Mark McClellan, M.D., Ph.D. "We expect that improved payments for evaluation and management services will result in better outcomes, because physicians will get financial support for giving patients the help they need to manage illnesses more effectively." The proposed notice addresses two components of physician payments under the MPFS: (1) a comprehensive review of physician work relative value units (RVUs), as well as (2) a proposed change in the methodology for calculating practice expenses
