CMS releases 2014 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the final 2014 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule on Nov. 27, 2013. Overall, services provided by the dermatology specialty will see a 2 percent reduction in Medicare payments.

In addition, the rule does not reflect that Congress has not yet addressed repealing and replacing the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula used to calculate physician payment rates.
