NCHA Submits Comment Letters: Revisions to Physician Fee Schedule and Revisions to Rules Impacting Medicaid

North Carolina Healthcare Association (NCHA) is pleased that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is taking steps to reduce burdens on hospitals and health systems and recognize communication technology-based services as a covered service. We hope that CMS will work with the provider community to encourage Congress to amend the Social Security Act to expand the telehealth payment provisions. We remain disappointed that CMS is continuing its site-neutral payment policies. We are also concerned about CMS’s proposed reduction in payments for certain drugs, and the removal of providers’ ability to distinguish evaluation and management codes for different levels of resource use and intensity of services. For more details, see the NCHA Comment Letter submitted to CMS. NCHA also submitted comments to the North Carolina Rules Review Commission objecting to revisions in two rules impacting Medicaid. See the NCHA Comment Letter.
