On July 13, 2021, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released its proposed physician fee schedule rule for calendar year 2022, which includes provisions extending and expanding certain telehealth flexibilities, delaying the penalty phase of the appropriate use criteria program, and revising the federal physician self-referral regulations, among other proposals. As in other recent rulemakings, CMS also is seeking comments on addressing health disparities and promoting health equity.
