Recent changes to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) rules for split/shared encounters involving physicians and advanced practice providers (APPs) are an important area for healthcare leaders to understand, as they are sometimes confused with teaching physician or incident-to rules.
These rules, codified in CMS Regulation § 415.140, are set to be updated with implementation of a new final rule in 2023 following an initial rule update that was made effective in January 2022.
This member-exclusive split/shared visit and service reference details the 2022 and 2023 substantive portion definitions, as well as place of service and modifier usage, for E/M visits in outpatient facilities (excluding office visits in non-facility settings), hospital facilities, and skilled nursing facilities.
