The Perfect Storm: Part II webinar today discussed "Is Help on the Way?" and the answer is no.
Meetings at both CMS and the AMA this month confirmed that there are still more unanswered questions than answers.
How are tests going to be coded and priced by CMS and private payers moving forward? Do we really have until 1/1/2013 to see the impact of the new molecular codes? Or, if the RUC proceeds to release pricing for some or all for the 2012 coding year, how will individual Medicare Carriers and private payers respond?
