The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has issued their summary of the policies in the calendar year (CY) 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) Final Rule and announces the Telehealth Originating Site Facility Fee payment amount. In addition, I published an article on December 2, 2020 titled “CMS Releases 2021 Final Rule for Services Reimbursed Under the MPFS where I provided a summary of the following topics in the CY 2021 Final Rule:
