-Potentially misvalued services under the physician fee schedule
-Code specific issues including site of service anomalies, Epidural Lysis, Intrathecal Epidural Catheters and Pumps and Neurostimulators
-Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)
-Anesthesia Conversion Factor
-Electronic Prescribing (eRx) Incentive Program
-Medicare Telehealth Services for the Physician Fee Schedule
