USPA Calls for Freeze to MPFS Updates and Fundamental Reform

USPA believes it would be best for CMS to truly ‘prioritize stability and predictability over ongoing updates’ by temporarily freezing the implementation of further policy updates – including the clinical labor policy in 2023 through 2025, EM revisions in 2023.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The United Specialists for Patient Access (USPA) announced today that the organization has submitted a comment letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the proposed rule for the CY 2023 Physician Fee Schedule (CMS-1770-P).

The USPA letter states, in part, “we believe it would be best for CMS to truly ‘prioritize stability and predictability over ongoing updates’ by temporarily freezing the implementation of further policy updates – including the clinical labor policy in 2023 through 2025, EM revisions in 2023 and the implementation of G2211 in 2024 – that will result in further significant redistributions to the Physician Fee Schedule. Instead, we urge CMS to focus on fundamental PFS reform.”

The comment letter to CMS goes on to state, “CMS is continuing with the second year of the 2022 clinical labor policy which adds additional cuts to certain providers of another 4.5% so that certain office-based specialists will be subject to cuts of more than 9% in 2023 alone.”

USPA recently released a 60-second explainer video on the proposed MPFS and EM cuts. Click here to view it.

USPA represents a broad spectrum of office-based specialists such as anesthesiologists, cardiologists, dialysis vascular access providers, limb salvage specialists, phlebologists, physical therapists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, urologists, and vascular surgeons, as well as specialty societies and the device and equipment manufacturers that support them.
