2012 Announcement Posted on the CMS Website

You can download the announcement here: 2012 Announcement.

As CMS indicated in the Advance Notice, there will not be a change to the CMS-HCC model for 2012, so that plans and providers can focus on other upcoming changes.

CMS also added several specialties to the acceptable physician specialties for risk adjustment, and deleted one tyep.

The additions are: Interventional Pain Management (IPM) (code 09), Speech Language Pathologist (code 15), Hospice and Palliative Care (code 17), and Geriatric Psychiatry (code 27). Note that Multispecialty Clinic or Group Practice (code 70) is not an Acceptable Physician Specialty Type.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
