The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released its final Physician Fee Schedule and Revisions to Payment Policies for 2012. The rule, which is titled "Medicare Program; Payment Policies under the Physician Fee Schedule, Five-Year Review of Work Relative Value Units, Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule: Signature on Requisition, and Other Revisions to Part B for CY 2012" became available November 1, 2011, at 4:15 pm.  It will be published in the Federal Register on November 28, 2011. The full text of the rule can be viewed at here.

Taken in aggregate, CMS estimates that in calendar year 2012 under the final rule hematology/oncology will not experience any overall cut in reimbursement. The actual impact on individual physician practices will depend on the mix of services provided. ASCO is currently analyzing the full impact of the final rule and will share a more detailed summary of the rule.
