The 2022 Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule is Open for Comment

CMS 2022 Physician Fee Schedule

Yes, these proposed “rules” are hundreds of pages (sometimes thousands) and are often filled with jargon. Sometimes it’s hard to understand exactly what they are talking about. However, once finalized, the arcane details will control how physicians get paid in 2022. The only reason I don’t lie awake at night worrying is that the Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders reviews all the relevant proposed rules and alerts clinical associations to changes that might impact the care of patients with wounds. Click to read the Alliance comment letters on past proposed rules.

I am no expert at payment policy, but some years I feel strongly about some aspect of the proposed rule and I send in comments of my own. If you have never actually read a proposed rule for the physician fee schedule, you might start with this one.
