ACS CAN Comments on CY2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

September 15, 2021

ACS CAN's comments in response to the calendar year (CY) 2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule focused on two issues:

1. whether HHS should create a separate code for pain management activities, and

2. expressing support for the changes to beneficiary cost sharing as a result of the colonoscopy fix enacted as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. ACS CAN also urged CMS to clarify that follow-up colonoscopies shoudld be included as part of the preventive services benefit and thus available to beneficaries at no cost-sharing.
