Many things come to mind when we think about June. It is a popular month for weddings and graduations. It marks the official start of summer. June also signals the beginning of an annual rulemaking cycle. CMS typically releases its proposed rules for the upcoming year for both MACRA’s Quality Payment Program (QPP) and the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) by late June.
As I write this article (April) I cannot forecast the specifics of what may or may not be included in these proposed rules. The point of this article is to show that these proposed rules can help you prepare for the upcoming year or beyond – with some caveats. Proposed rules include a comment period, which is an opportunity for all stakeholders and interested parties to let CMS know what we think about the issues within the rules and provide feedback that potentially could convince CMS to take a different approach or stance. Remember, these rules include proposals that can and frequently do vary from what is announced in final rules that come out in the fall.
