CMS announced on December 29, 2014, that Medicare Administrative Contractors will hold claims containing 2015 services paid under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) for the first 14 calendar days of January 2015 (i.e., from January 1 through January 14). The claims are being held to implement corrections to technical errors discovered after the CY 2015 MPFS final rule was published on November 13, 2014. The hold is expected to have minimal impact on provider cash flows in light of the typical paid claims timeline. Additional information about the hold can be found here.
