E/M Sign on Letter of Support for CMS Final Rule

November 21, 2019

To: Chairmen Pallone, Neal, and Grassley, and Ranking Members Walden, Brady and Wyden

"With the publication by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) of a final rule on November 1, the Medicare program made a strong inroad toward addressing the historic undervaluation of Evaluation and Management (E/M) codes (office visits) by internal medicine specialists and other physicians who deliver primary and subspecialty care to millions of Medicare patients. The undersigned groups strongly support the CMS final rule. Not only will it improve the payment for the E/M services that have been undervalued by Medicare for so long, but it will reduce the time physicians are required to spend on unnecessary documentation."
