Washington, DC - Today, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the CY 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule. Once again, CMS is proposing severe cuts to physician reimbursement. This is on top of the 2% reduction that went into effect in 2023, which would have been worse without direct intervention from Congress at the urging of the entire medical community.
