Topic Medicare: Physician Participation Deadline Extended
Background CMS extended the deadline for physicians to determine their 2013 Medicare Participation status after a last minute deal was signed to stop the 28.5 percent cut to Medicare for 2013.
Regulating Body CMS
Compliance Date 2/15/2013
Consequences A physician's participation status for 2013 will remain the same as 2012 unless the physician notifies their Medicare contractor by the deadline.
Next Steps Physicians should determine if they want to change their participation status with Medicare (Participation, Non-Participation or Opt-Out) and take the appropriate steps to make this change.​
