Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA) introduced an amendment to The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590). The amendment delays by one year the implementation of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) decision to eliminate the use of consultation codes for 2010. It will be interesting to see how this pans out in the next 2 weeks.
