Additional Background About the CY 2024 Medicare PFS Final Rule

The CY 2024 Physician Fee Schedule final rule was published on November 2, 2023, and includes significant changes to the Medicare benefit structure. Most notably, there are new services to address HRSNs, including CHI, social determinants of health (SDOH) risk assessment, and PIN services.

There are also provisions to support Medicare providers contracting with community care hubs (CCHs) and CBOs to address HRSNs for priority populations. These Medicare codes are the first specifically designed to describe services involving community health workers, care navigators, and peer support specialists, and that allow these services to be provided by personnel employed by CCHs/CBOs under the general supervision of the billing practitioner.
