Small Fee Reduction in CMS Payments in 2015

posted by: Bud O'Leary, OD

The Federal Register for Friday, July 11, 2014 itemizes two CMS fee reductions for ophthalmology and optometry in 2015. The fee for non-facility services (procedure codes 92012 and 92014) will be reduced by $1.49 and $1.88 respectively. The final payments will be $85.56 and $124.22.

CMS has identified a 2010 RVU error that had resulted in higher RVUs for these procedure codes. The error has been corrected and is reflected in lower RVUs for these services.

The page from the Federal Register dealing with these changes can be downloaded from the link below.
