One of the most frustrating issues facing members of the Society is overdue payments, especially rejections for approved drugs in approved tumor types by approved methods. These issues are being addressed head on through liaison committees at the carrier level. This allows us to combine the efforts of our membership to pinpoint and prioritize issues to be addressed by insurance companies. Our main goal is to get insurance companies to correct system problems so future claims will be paid on first submission.
Please keep in mind that MSHO cannot directly submit status claims for our member offices. The liaison process is not to get a single claim paid, but to prevent system errors.
MSHO works directly with our member practices to provide a mechanism to educate and support our reimbursement personnel throughout the state. If your practice is a member of MSHO and you are involved in reimbursement, please be sure to check the MSHO event page to obtain information on the next MSHO Reimbursement Meeting.

MSHO 2020 Physician Fee Schedule Analyzer Tool
To make analyzing the financial impact of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule changes easier, we have created MICHIGAN specific tools. The tools incorporate the latest fee schedule released by WPS which includes the changes in the 2020 Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule. This Excel spreadsheet will help analyze the impact of the Evaluation and Management codes as well as the Administration codes.
Be sure to choose the correct spreadsheet for your locality (01 or 99). To determine the annual impact, you will need to input your approximate “units billed” during 2019 for each code in the yellow space provided. The tool will automatically give you the impact of the change for that specific code, as well as a grand total of all codes at the bottom of the spreadsheet based on your 2019 volume.
