CMS Releases Updated Acceptable Physician Specialty List

CMS posted an updated listing of acceptable physician types for risk adjustment purposes on the CSSC Operations Website.

Note that CMS has deleted specialty 70, Multi-Specialty Physician Group as an acceptable type, and added Interventional Pain Management (09), Speech Language Pathology (15), Hospice and Palliative Care (17), and Geriatric Psychiatry (27).

These changes were announced in the Announcement of Calendar Year (CY) 2012 Medicare Advantage Capitation Rates and Medicare Advantage and Part D Payment Policies and Final Call Letter released on April 4, 2011, effective January 1, 2010.

Both documents will be posted on the website in the near future.
