October Update to the 2018 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Database

October 1, 2018, Medicare will add procedure codes G9978-G9987, Q9994, Q5105-Q5106, and Q5108 to the Medicare physician fee schedule database (MPFS).

Contractors will not search their files to either retract payment for claims already paid or to retroactively pay claims, however, they will adjust claims that you bring to their attention.

In accordance with the Medicare Claims Processing Manual (Publication 100-04), Chapter 23, Section 30.1, this should be considered the 30-day notice of a change to the 2018 Medicare physician fee schedule scheduled for October 1, 2018.
