Secretary
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Washington, DC 20201

Dear Secretary Azar:

The undersigned organizations support the actions of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in last year’s Medicare physician payment final rule to utilize the American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Editorial Panel coding framework and AMA Specialty Society Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC) recommended values for office and outpatient visits starting January 1, 2021. The framework was the result of significant collaboration by an AMAconvened workgroup that brought together more than 170 state medical and specialty societies. CMS’ new office visit policy will lead to significant administrative burden reduction and better describe and recognize the resources involved in office visits as they are performed today.
