The purpose of this action is to update the
Maryland Medical Assistance Program Professional Service Provider Manual and
the Professional Services Fee Schedule incorporated by reference in this
regulation. The changes to the Manual update CPT/HCPCS codes for professional
services, clarify FFS preauthorization procedures, and adjust the Evaluation
and Management (E&M) fee schedule to align with the FY 2020 budget, which
provides funds to maintain physician reimbursement rates for E&M services
at 93 percent of Medicare.
