From NYSPA’s Website:
On December 26, 2013, President Obama signed into law the Pathway for SGR Reform Act of 2013. This new law prevents a scheduled payment reduction for physician services covered under Medicare Part B. The new law also provides a 0.5 percent update for all Medicare Part B fees through March 31, 2014. It is anticipated that a permanent “fix” for the SGR problem will achieved over the next several months. NYSPA will have the new 2014 Medicare Part B fees on the NYSPA website next week. An e-Bulletin will be sent out when the 2014 fees are posted. As was discussed during the recent CPT webinar, there are very substantial increases in the Medicare fees for the psychotherapy add-on codes 90833 and 90836.
