OAR Comments on 2024 Medicare Reimbursement Proposal

posted: September 15, 2023

E/M payment provisions and telehealth allowances endorsed.

In September 11, 2023, correspondence with CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, OAR President Elisabeth Roter expressed the organization's support for the Agency's work to address two outstanding issues in evaluation and management (E/M) visit payment: implementing separate payment for the office/outpatient (O/O) E/M visit complexity add-on code and continuing to delay a revised definition of split (or shared) visits. The OAR also endorsed proposals to continue paying for telehealth services provided nationwide and to patients in their homes, as well as the continuation of payment for audio-only visits and all Medicare telehealth services covered in 2022 through the end of 2024.

Contrarily, the OAR opposed the proposed reduction to the 2024 Medicare conversion factor and called on CMS to use every tool it possesses to reduce cuts necessitated by budget neutrality requirements.
