Interventional Cardiology Fares Better Than Many in CMS Final Physician Payment Rule for 2016

from SCAI

With no threat of severe cuts from the sustainable growth rate (SGR), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released its final rules for 2016 Oct. 30.

SCAI's advocacy efforts on behalf of interventional cardiology patients and the specialists that care for them have been well. Fees for the average interventional cardiology procedure increased by 0.7 percent (see chart). Others did not fare as well. Cardiology as a whole saw no net change in reimbursement. Even worse, some electrophysiology and echocardiography procedures have been targeted for re-evaluation by CMS. Such re-evaluation typically results in lower reimbursement.
