JULY 3, 2015
CMS followed the law and instructed every Medicare carrier to update their 2015 conversion factor on July 1st. Many physicians were not aware they were getting a 0.5% increase in the conversion factor used to calculate the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, effective July 1st.
By the way - if you are one of the practices that are FOOLISHLY setting your FEES at the level you believe to be the Medicare allowed amount or MPFS, then you really should visit with Don and see why that is so foolish. You will probably be surprised to find out how much money that mistake has cost your practice.
Also - if you're just now visiting this website for the first time - don't forget to download one of Don's monthly newsletters for free and check it out. See why thousands read his writings every single month. You should also check out his newest book being shipped out in July on HOW TO STOP CARRIERS FROM RECOUPING - using the ERISA law. The new book is called THE UNFILTERED GUIDE TO ERISA FOR MEDICAL PROVIDERS and will teach you not only how to stop carriers from recouping - but also how to force them to pay when they don't want to.
