What’s New in CMS’ Calendar Year (CY) 2024 Proposed Rules for FQHCs

August 3, 2023

Access the on-demand webinar here

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) CY2024 Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) and Outpatient Hospital Prospective Payment System (OPPS) Proposed Rules contain various provisions that will expand payment to federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) for Medicare services. The proposals will particularly allow FQHCs to expand care management and mental health services for Medicare beneficiaries, and to emphasize the role of community health workers (CHWs) and patient navigators in helping Medicare patients.

We will cover the top developments in the Proposed Rules, including provisions that will, if finalized, in CY2024:

  1. Add the services of mental health counselors (MHCs) and marriage and family therapists (MFTs) to the Medicare FQHC benefit,
  2. Add a comprehensive new behavioral health service eligible to be furnished by FQHCs, intensive outpatient services (IOP),
  3. Allow FQHCs to bill Medicare on a monthly basis for furnishing remote patient monitoring (RPM) and remote therapeutic monitoring (RTM) services,
  4. Allow FQHCs to bill Medicare on a monthly basis for community health integration (CHI) and principal illness navigation (PIN) services, and
  5. Relax various supervision requirements for care management and “incident to” services in FQHCs.
