Lots of anxiety on many lists re lower fees. So far, in NY only CDPHP has lowered fees for 90834. They seem to expect folks to bill 90837 to get the higher rate but that could change. Optum is expecting us to use 90834 in place of 90806 for the same rate. Anything else we use, which is non routine, will get their attention.
Most insurance companies are still working out the details so thing could change as we move forward, including rates.
There is no grace period. Only new codes will be accepted starting January first.
