Endocrine Society Comments on Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule

September 29, 2020

To: The Honorable Seema Verma, Administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

"Our members are grateful for the flexibilities implemented by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in response to the pandemic, which have allowed them to continue to deliver high quality care to patients while minimizing their risk of exposure to COVID-19. The Endocrine Society is pleased the agency is proposing additional policies to expand some flexibilities and make other permanent.

The Society looks forward to working closely with CMS as the agency implements this proposed rule and offers the following comments that focus on areas of interest to our members:

  • Valuation of Codes;
  • Evaluation and management (E/M) services;
  • Telehealth policies;
  • Scope of practice; and
  • Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program Expanded Model Emergency Policy."
