AMA releases summary of proposed rules for 2019 PFS/QPP

The American Medical Association (AMA) has developed a high-level summary of the proposed rules that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released for the 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) and the 2019 Quality Payment Program (QPP). AMA points out that this is the first year that the proposed rules for the PFS and the QPP have been combined. AMA also notes that CMS has issued fact sheets addressing the 2019 PFS and QPP proposals. CMS will accept comments on the proposed rule through September 10, 2018. The final rule is expected to be released in early November.
