Holding Of 2015 Date-Of-Service Claims For Services Paid Under 2015 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

The CY 2015 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) final rule was published in the Federal Register on November 13, 2014. Medicare Administrative Contractors will hold claims containing 2015 services paid under the MPFS for the first 14 calendar days of January 2015 in an effort to implement corrections to technical errors discovered after the publication of the MPFS rule. Please note, this hold will have a minimal impact on provider cash flow as, under current law, clean electronic claims are not paid sooner than 14 days (29 days for paper claims) after the date of receipt. MPFS claims for services provided on or before Wednesday, December 31, 2014 are unaffected by the 2015 claims hold and will be processed and paid under the normal procedures and time frames.
