Summary of the PFS and HOPPS Proposed Rules

On July 3, 2014, CMS made available on the internet the proposed 2015 Medicare payment rates and policy changes under the PFS and HOPPS. ASE has developed a summary with provisions of the proposed rates and policies of interest to the society and its members. Charts summarizing the proposed changes in Medicare rates are included to help clarify these proposed rates.
