Medicare program rules released for next year

December 13, 2011

The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published its final Medicare Physician Payment Rule for 2012 on Nov. 28 in the Federal Register. In addition to setting the Medicare fee schedule, the document details rules for Medicare initiatives such as the Medicare Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS),   e-Rx Incentive Program, EHR Incentive Program, and Maintenance of Certification Incentive Program.

Updates regarding the 2012 Medicare incentive programs will be posted this month to appropriate AOAConnect blogs (www.aoa.org/AOAConnect) as well as the “Latest News” box on the homepage of the AOA Web site (www.aoa.org).

Detailed information regarding the incentive programs will appear in the next edition of AOA News.
