On July 13, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the Calendar Year (CY) 2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) proposed rule. This regulation also impacts the Quality Payment Program (QPP). CMS released accompanying fact sheets on the MPFS and QPP. Comments on the proposed rule are due by Monday, September 13, 2021.
The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) will thoroughly review the proposed rule and provide comments to CMS. The final rule will be released around Monday, November 1 and will take effect on Saturday, January 1, 2022.
To help family physicians understand the proposed changes, the AAFP has created an initial summary.
