On July 12, 2018, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule. CMS is seeking your comments, which are due by 5:00 p.m. ET on September 10.
You must officially submit your comments electronically through Regulations.gov, regular mail, express or overnight mail, or by hand or courier. Read more about the proposed rule by reviewing the Fact Sheet  and the 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) proposed rule presentation.
