Last week, AAHKS joined the AAOS and 47 other specialty and state orthopaedic societies in writing to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding the Requirements Related to “Surprise Billing; Part II Interim Final Rule” (CMS-9908-IFC), published on October 7. The letter raises concerns about “the deviation from congressional intent” with language in the Interim Final Rule Part II related to median in-network rates, market share of parties, patient acuity or complexity of services and more. The letter also addresses concerns about the Independent Dispute Resolution Process, Good Faith Estimate tool and the Provider Patient Dispute Resolution process.
