ASCRS members have recently discussed Medicare participation options on the EyeConnect Listserv. Each year, ASCRS updates its Medicare Participation Kit to provide members with details on their options for participating in Medicare and helping educate patients. The current 2019 kit was developed immediately following the release of the 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) final rule in November 2018 to provide members with resources before the December 31, 2018, deadline to make participation decisions for 2019. We will provide an updated 2020 version when the 2020 MPFS final rule is released in November 2019. Physicians will have until December 31, 2019, to make their participation options for 2020.
