CMS’s decision to extend the time available for the physician revalidation effort came after the AMA expressed disagreement with CMS’ initial legal analysis of the ACA screening provisions. Click here to read the AMA’s September 23, 2011 letter on revalidation.
Palmetto GBA will be releasing a statement on this, which will be available this week at its website. Providers are still being instructed to wait until they are contacted by Palmetto GBA before beginning the revalidation effort. Those physicians that have already been contacted and instructed to begin revalidation should continue that process according to Palmetto GBA’s instructions.
