The 2014 Medicare fee schedule for physicians, ambulance services, clinical laboratory services, durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthodontics and supplies is available on the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services website, CMS.gov, as of 2015. Medicare fee schedules older than 4 years are archived at FederalRegister.gov.
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services also offers a multi-input search tool for physician fees that, allows users to search for fee schedules from 2000 to 2015, as of 2015. The multi-input feature allows users to narrow their search by selecting the year they want to search, the type of information they are looking for (pricing, geographic practice cost index, etc.), Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System Criteria, as well as Medicare Administrative Contractor Options. The search tool is adaptive, so each selection users make to these four categories changes the options available below. Once users have entered their search criteria, they have the option to print, download or email the results.
The Medicare and Medicaid Services provide additional assistance at CMS.gov to professionals in medical billing fields with comprehensive coding and billing assistance. The assistance program, called Medical Learning Network Guided Pathways, offers informative documents for download and allows users to sign up for a digital newsletter to stay informed on Medicare updates.
