More than 100 medical societies, including the American College of Rheumatology, have urged Congress to reverse a recent CMS policy that applies Merit-based Incentive Payment System adjustments to Medicare Part B payments, warning that it will create massive financial uncertainty for specialty providers and endanger patient access.
In a letter addressed Senate Finance Committee, as well as the House Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce committees, the leaders of 109 medical societies argued that the new policy, included in CMS’ 2018 Quality Payment Program Final Rule, creates enormous financial risks for specialties that administer Part B drugs, jeopardizing their ability to provide the care for their patients.
