On July 12, 2018, CMS proposed a number of payment and documentation changes to reduce administrative burden and eliminate “misvaluation” of codes for outpatient Evaluation & Management (E/M) visits furnished under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS).

The final rule will take effect January 1, 2019.
