The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has released the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Rule for calendar year 2009. The rule can be found online at the CMS website.

Dorsey & Whitney is now reviewing and analyzing the regulations in detail. The rule contains final language on the mark-up rule for diagnostic testing and other critical matters. We will be providing a summary analysis shortly.

In the meantime, please contact any member of the Dorsey & Whitney Health Care Practice Group with specific questions.
