AASM Weekly Update
Friday, March 11, 2011
The Coding Page of the AASM website has been expanded to include a new Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Search Guide. This illustrated guide includes step-by-step instructions for looking up pricing information for a single HCPCS code or a series of HCPCS codes. Payment can be searched by locality to find the variation in reimbursement from region to region. Additionally, searches can be performed with or without modifiers to help determine the exact reimbursement for a service provided.
