According to Medicare Learning Network Connects eNews, pending the outcome of the SGR Doc Fix legislation (discussed in more detail in today’s Health Headline called “House Passes SGR ‘Doc Fix’ Legislation”), CMS has instructed Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) to hold claims containing services paid under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) for the first 10 business days of April. This hold would only affect MPFS claims with dates of service of April 1, 2014, and later. Claims for services delivered on or before March 31, 2014, will be processed and paid under normal procedures, regardless of any Congressional actions.
