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
Visit the TMA website for examples of how the fee cut affects payment for Medicare services, plus FAQs.
