The G2211 code (the inherently complex add-on code for evaluation and management — EM) has been deferred to 2024. Instead CMS increased the RVU value to $34.8931, which is 3.75% global pay increase for physicians.

CMS has produced NO other regulatory guidance, other than the MLN update shown above and changing the rates. This isn’t a big surprise, because the change from Congress was unexpected and sudden.

Later I will blog about the experience with the news EM coding method.
