June 2010 Claims Being Held

The Continuing Extension Act of 2010, enacted April 15, extended the zero percent update to the 2010 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) through May 31. Congress is working on legislation that would again temporarily avert the 21.3 percent negative update, scheduled to take effect June 1. Meanwhile, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has instructed its contractors to hold claims containing services paid under the MPFS (including anesthesia services) for the first 10 business days of June. This hold will only affect MPFS claims with dates of service June 1, 2010 and later.
