2020 Physician Fee Schedule

On September 26, 2019, PAEA submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on the calendar year 2020 Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule. In the comments, PAEA praised the inclusion of revisions to existing regulations governing the use of student-provided documentation in the medical record for billing purposes. Prior to finalization, PAEA urged that the agency:

  • Explicitly name the types of students and clinicians eligible to provide and utilize documentation in order to avoid ambiguity
  • Address physical presence requirements that do not positively contribute to patient care
