CMS recently released payment and policy updates for the CY 2023 Medicare physician fee schedule. The updates include a decrease to the PFS conversion factor from $33.61 in CY 2022 to $33.06 in CY 2023 and revisions to the quality payment program. It also now allows professional counselors and marriage and family therapists to offer services under general rather than direct physician supervision. MHA published an issue brief with additional information.
