Can I Collect the Medicare Sequester Cut From Patients?

Q: Can I pass on the Medicare sequester 2-percent cut to my patients and collect it from them?

A: No. The patient’s share continues to be 20 percent of the current 2013 fee schedule amount. Medicare pays you the fee schedule amount less 2 percent
