Noridian posts updated Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

January 19, 2016
Area(s) of Interest: Payor Issues and Reimbursement 

California's Medicare contractor, Noridian, has posted an updated 2016 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule on its website. Last week, Noridian had removed the fee schedule because it contained several technical errors that needed to be fixed.

This update is not expected to cause any delays in reimbursement for physicians, because under current law, clean electronic claims are not paid any sooner than 14 calendar days (29 for paper claims) after the date of receipt.

The updated fees are valid for dates of service from January 1 through December 31, 2016.
