Two letters sent to CMS this week from AAHKS Executive Director, Michael J. Zarski, JD, provide comments on the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) and the hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS). These comments are offered in anticipation of continued close collaboration with CMS to ensure payment reforms benefit from AAHKS expertise and experience in TJA procedures.
