CMS released its final rules for the 2020 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) and Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (HOPPS) in early November. NAEC has prepared summaries of the provisions of the rules that are of greatest impact to its members with charts showing relative value units and national average payment rates for epilepsy center services. The MPFS Summary and HOPPS Summary can be found on the NAEC website. NAEC released a separate summary of the provisions of the rules that impact the new long term EEG codes.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the NAEC Annual Meeting and Coding Session at AES on Monday, December 9, 2019 in Baltimore. Please contact NAEC with any questions.
