Cognitive Care Alliance Letter to Congress on E/M Services

January 14, 2020

To: Chairman Grassley, Chairman Neal, Ranking Member Wyden and Ranking Member Brady:

"These E/M policies will be implemented on January 1, 2021 unless CMS makes additional revisions in the CY 2021 PFS rulemaking cycle. We are extremely grateful CMS has chosen to address the outpatient E/M codes. These policy changes address the longstanding payment inaccuracies in the PFS and are an overdue first step toward appropriately recognizing the value of the essential cognitive care that patients receive from CCA members. Furthermore, these changes will help to protect patient access to cognitive care services by addressing the compensation gap for cognitive care and improve physician workforce shortages within the specialties we represent."
