CMS Issues Notice on Extension of Add-ons

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a notice regarding the extension of Medicare provider provisions included in the Bipartisan Budget Act. The notice includes a paragraph with the details of the extension of the ambulance add-ons. The notice also states that “Medicare Administrative Contractors (MAC) will implement these changes no later than February 26, 2018 and will provide additional details on timelines for reprocessing or release of held claims impacted by these changes.”  As previously reported by the AAA, on February 14, CMS posted a revised Public Use File with the new Medicare ambulance fee schedule rates which include the 2% urban, 3% rural and super rural increases. We will keep you posted about any new developments about the reprocessing of previously submitted claims.
