ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Medicare claims processing in the U.S. It mentions that under the "Current Procedural Terminology" (CPT) in 2012, physician subspecialties are recognized in considering a new patient. It notes that despite this provision, Medicare does not improve its evaluation/management (E/M) rules for new patient. It also emphasizes that in Medicare services, specialty is determined by the physician's or the practitioner's primary specialty enrollment in such health insurance.
