CMS is continuing to assess the impact of the government shutdown on 2014 Medicare fee for service payment regulations. CMS has announced that it will publish the calendar year 2014 Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) and Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) on or before November 27, 2013. Despite the potential delay, CMS has announced that the rules will still go into effect on January 1, 2014. The AASM will provide information to members via future editions of the Weekly Update once the payment rules are published.
