Care Improvement Plus Sequestration Implementation
As a result of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced sequestration reductions to Medicare payments to physicians, facilities and other healthcare professionals, as well as our health plans, Care Improvement Plus intends to implement reductions to physician, facility, ancillary provider and other healthcare professional payments from its Medicare Advantage plans. Specifically, Care Improvement Plus will reduce payments by 2 percent for dates of service or dates of discharge on or after April 1, 2013 to providers whose reimbursements are based upon Medicare reimbursement methodology or rates, including Medicare fee schedules. As further information becomes available regarding the government’s implementation of sequestration and as our internal teams continue their planning, we will update our communications to impacted providers.
