Medicare Releases New 2021 Fee Schedule
Editor’s Note: Due to a Medicare carrier duplication error, the fees previously listed in this article (January 7, 2021) were incorrect for Zone 12. As of February 2, 2021, the fees in this schedule are correct. As always, the ICS continues to recommend that participating providers bill their normal office fees.
CMS announced the release of the new 2021 fee schedule that takes into account the Congressional changes from the late December omnibus budget and relief bill. Fortunately, we received a one-year reprieve from the drastic cuts previously planned.
The Illinois Medicare fee schedule is below, and you can access the NGS lookup tool here.
