ACOI Joins in Call for Congress to Reform Medicare Payment System
January 24, 2023
On December 22, ACOI alerted its members to Congress’ end-of-year spending deal that also included an extension through 2024 of Medicare telehealth flexibilities put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. The two-year extension also applies to certain telehealth services furnished by audio-only (HCPCS codes 99241–99275, 99201–99215, 90804–90809, and 90862).
Relatedly, ACOI recently joined numerous medical societies in sending a letter to all Senate and House lawmakers asking for congressional hearings and collaboration with stakeholders to explore long-term solutions to the broken Medicare physician payment system.
