Medicare, Medicaid & CHIP

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the agency responsible for running Medicare and Medicaid within the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), arguably issues the most regulations that have a direct impact on emergency physicians. Their annual Medicare physician fee schedule (PFS) regulation includes proposals that affect Medicare payments—which serve as the basis for which many private payers set their reimbursement rates.

ACEP had responded in September to CMS' proposed regulation with a robust comment letter; click here for a summary of that response.
