2014 Medicare Fee Schedule

The latest HI Medicare Fee Schedule is now posted FOR HSCA MEMBERS ONLY behind the Resources tab of this website. HSCA is pleased to provide members with a copy of this information as well as some of the related regulations for automobile and workers’ compensation claims. A new section on HMSA/BCBS claims has also been addded.

You will be happy to know that President Obama has signed a law that raises the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule. In addition, the AMA has revalued the CMT codes upward. The net effect is that the majority of our fees have gone up. (CMS did slightly devalue a few of the E&M codes, but very minimally).

 

Additionally, members will find a current listing of the Only acceptable Medicare ICD-9 diagnostic codes. Noridian, our new Medicare carrier, has adopted these specifically for Chiropractic claims. Remember the primary diagnostic code must always be from the 739.0 thru 739.5 group. You must have a secondary diagnosis supporting the primary diagnosis, and it can only be one that is on the approved secondary list.

Member with questions are invited to contact the HSCA office at (808) 926-8883.
