On August 3, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed rule that includes their proposed changes to the Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) for 2021. With the rule almost finalized we, at Aledade, know these policy decisions are crucial not just for the hundreds of independent primary care practices in Aledade ACOs, but for physicians across the country. The big proposal for primary care is to significantly update the physician or advanced practice provider time spent on evaluation and management (E&M) codes for the first time in over 20 years. In the ACO program, our efforts to focus quality on the most impactful measures continue to pay off.
