Medicine Warns of Brewing Regulatory Storm

Physicians face an "imminent storm" of mass confusion caused by overlapping regulatory mandates and reporting requirements from multiple federal programs unless federal officials do something to prevent it, TMA and other state and national medical societies warn in a letter to Centers or Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Acting Director Marilyn Tavenner.

The groups are concerned about regulations and penalties associated with the value-based modifier, about penalties under the electronic prescribing program, Physician Quality Reporting System and electronic health record incentive program, and about the transition to the ICD-10 coding system.
