Medicare Physician Participation Options: CMS Extends December 31st Deadline by 45 Days

December 19, 2007


The late decision to halt a 10.1-percent cut to physician reimbursement caused CMS to announce an extension to its deadline for physicians to change their Medicare participation options. Physicians wishing to change their current Medicare participating or non-participating status must do so prior to this extended deadline of February 15, 2008.
