Payment landscape forecast: 3 gastroenterologists consider the possibility of colonoscopy reimbursement cuts

CMS has released the 2016 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule, which could put into action payment cuts for colonoscopy and other lower GI/endoscopy procedures of up to 19 percent. Colonoscopy is a mainstay procedure in GI and the gold standard for colorectal cancer screening. Three gastroenterologists – including Elliot Ellis, MD, Team Lead, EMA Gastroenterology at Modernizing Medicine – look ahead and consider how these payment cuts would affect their specialty.
