SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    In FR Doc. 2012-26900 of November 16, 2012 (77 FR 68892 through 
69373), there were a number of technical errors that are identified and 
corrected in the Correction of Errors section below. These corrections 
are effective January 1, 2013. We note that the Addenda A through H for 
the CY 2013 PFS final rule with comment period as corrected in this 
correction notice are available on the CMS Web site at www.cms.gov//PhysicianFeeSched/.

II. Summary of Errors

A. Summary of Errors in the Preamble

    On pages 68904 through 68906, in Table 3: Calculation of PE RVUs 
under Methodology for Selected Codes, the PE RVUs listed in the table 
are incorrect.
    On page 68907, in our discussion of the changes to direct PE inputs 
for specific services, we made a typographical error in identifying the 
calendar years.
    On page 68957, in our discussion of Medicare telehealth services, 
we inadvertently omitted a discussion of psychotherapy services.
    On page 68958, in our discussion of therapy services, we 
inadvertently omitted language regarding the claims-based data 
collection strategy for therapy services.
    On page 68965, we inadvertently omitted language in our discussion 
on non-payable G-codes on beneficiary functional status.
    On page 68966, we inadvertently included language.
    On pages 68967 and 68968, we inadvertently made errors in the 
descriptors for G-codes in Table 21: G-Codes for Claims-Based 
Functional Reporting for CY 2013.
    On page 69033, we inadvertently omitted a code-specific direct PE 
input.
    On pages 69042 and 69043, in our discussion of the global period 
for CPT code 22586, we made a typographical error in the code 
descriptor.
    On page 69051,
    a. We inadvertently used the wrong descriptor for CPT 36221.
    b. We inadvertently omitted two paragraphs regarding our treatment 
of CPT codes 37197 and 37214.
    On pages 69071 through 69073, we made clerical errors in table 
references.
    On page 69074, in our discussion of pricing supply and equipment 
items, we inadvertently omitted a paragraph detailing the items for 
which we did not receive adequate information and therefore could not 
price them for the interim final values in the CY 2013 rule.
    On pages 69077 through 69128, we made numerous typographical errors 
and technical errors in Table 74: CPT Codes with Refined direct PE 
Recommendations for CY 2013 Interim Codes and therefore are correcting 
the table.
    On page 69138, we made typographical errors in the CY 2013 PFS 
conversion factor (CF).
    On page 69138, we made typographical errors in the CY 2013 PFS CF 
in Table 87: Calculation of the CY 2013 PFS CF.
    On page 69139, in Table 88: Calculation of the CY 2013 Anesthesia 
CF, we inadvertently listed the incorrect anesthesia CF.
    On page 69145, we inadvertently referred to ``physician's order'' 
instead of ``valid prescription.''
    On page 69212, due to a typographical error, the title of PQRS 
Measure 190 referred to in the comment bullet was not correct.
    On pages 69215 through 69267, the notes after Table 95: Individual 
Quality Measures for the Physician Quality Reporting System Proposed to 
be Available for Reporting via Claims, Registry, EHR, or GRPO Web 
Interface Beginning in 2013 or 2014* were inadvertently omitted.
    On page 69237, in Table 95: Individual Quality Measures for the 
Physician Quality Reporting System Proposed to be Available for 
Reporting via Claims, Registry, EHR, or GRPO Web Interface Beginning in 
2013 or 2014*, due to a typographical error, Measures 189 and 
190 were incorrectly listed as available for reporting under PQRS.
    On page 69269, in Table 96: PQRS Quality Measures Available for 
Reporting for Group Practices Using the GPRO Web Interface for 2013 and 
Beyond, due to a typographical error, the description of the measure 
``Medication Reconciliation'' is incorrect.
    On page 69277, in Table 108: HIV/AIDS Measures Group, due to a 
clerical error, there are measures listed that have lost their NQF 
endorsement and are therefore no longer being maintained by the 
respective measure owner.
    On page 69300, due to a clerical error, we stated the deadlines for 
requesting an informal review for the 2012 and 2013 eRx incentives 
incorrectly. The regulation at Sec.  414.92(g) correctly states that 
eligible professionals and group practices must submit an informal 
review request for the 2012 and 2013 incentives within 90 days of the 
release of the feedback reports. The preamble does not reflect this 
same regulation text. Therefore, we are revising the preamble to 
reflect the regulation text at Sec.  414.92(g).
    On pages 69344 through 69345, in Table 134: CY 2013 PFS Final Rule 
with Comment Period Estimated Impact on Total Allowed Charges by 
Specialty, due to technical errors in the calculations of the impacts, 
there were errors in the total estimated impacts and the estimated 
impacts for the following specialties: 01--ALLERGY/IMMUNOLOGY, 02--
ANESTHESIOLOGY, 10--FAMILY PRACTICE, 13--GENERAL SURGERY, 18--INTERNAL 
MEDICINE, 19--INTERVENTIONAL PAIN MANAGEMENT, 21--MULTISPECIALTY 
CLINIC/OTHER PHY, 34--PLASTIC SURGERY, 41--UROLOGY, 49--NURSE ANES/ANES 
ASST.
    On page 69345, at the end of Table 134: CY 2013 PFS Final Rule with 
Comment Period Estimated Impact on Total Allowed Charges by Specialty, 
we made clerical errors in the first footnote.
    On pages 69347 through 69348, in Table 135: CY 2013 PFS Final Rule 
with

[[Page 48997]]

Comment Period Estimated Impact on Total Allowed Charges by Specialty 
by Selected Policy, due to technical errors in calculations of the 
impacts, there were errors in the estimates of the total impact and on 
the impact for the following specialties: 01--ALLERGY/IMMUNOLOGY, 02--
ANESTHESIOLOGY, 13--GENERAL SURGERY, 18--INTERNAL MEDICINE, 19--
INTERVENTIONAL PAIN MANAGEMENT, 21--MULTISPECIALTY CLINIC/OTHER PHY, 
41--UROLOGY, 49--NURSE ANES/ANES ASST.
    On page 69348, at the end of Table 135: CY 2013 PFS Final Rule with 
Comment Period Estimated Impact on Total Allowed Charges by Specialty 
by Selected Policy, we made a clerical error in the first footnote.
    On page 69350 through 69351, in Table 136: Impact of Final Rule 
with Comment Period on CY 2013 Payment for Selected Procedures, we made 
technical errors in the calculation of the impacts.
    On page 69351, in footnotes 3 and 4 at the end of Table 136: Impact 
of Final Rule with Comment Period on CY 2013 Payment for Selected 
Procedures, we inadvertently listed the incorrect 2012 conversion 
factor.

B. Summary and Correction of Errors in the Addenda on the CMS Web site

    Technical errors in the creation of the direct practice expense 
database resulted in incorrect direct PE inputs for CPT codes: 11307, 
11313, 13100, 13101, 13102, 13120, 13121, 13122, 13131, 13132, 13133, 
13150, 13151, 13152, 31231, 32554, 32555, 32556, 32557, 35475, 35476, 
36221, 36222, 36223, 36224, 36225, 36226, 37197, 52224, 64612, 65800, 
72040, 72050, 72052, 72069, 72193, 72194, 74160, 74170, 74177, 74178, 
76872, 77301, 92081, 92082, 92083, 92235, 92286, 93925, 93970, 95010, 
95015, 95017, 95018, 95782, 95783, and 97150. As a result of these 
errors, the budget neutrality adjustment used in calculating PE RVUs 
was incorrect, resulting in incorrect values for other PE RVUs in 
Addenda B and C. These errors are corrected in the revised Direct PE 
Input Database available on the CMS Web site at www.cms.gov//PhysicianFeeSched/. Resulting changes to PE RVUs are reflected in the 
corrected Addenda B and C posted on the CMS Web site at www.cms.gov//PhysicianFeeSched/.
    Due to a technical error, although the physician time records for 
CPT codes 22841, 51798, 95990, 96913, and 97602 were properly removed 
from the physician time file per final policy discussed in the CY 2013 
final rule with comment period (77 FR 68926), these time records were 
inadvertently used in the creation of the PE RVUs. This technical error 
is corrected in the revised CY 2013 Addendum B posted to the CMS Web 
site at www.cms.gov//PhysicianFeeSched/.
    Due a technical error in applying a change made in the final rule 
in calculating the impact of the ophthalmology MPPR used in the PE 
methodology, as described on page 68901, the ``CY 2012 Utilization data 
Crosswalk to CY 2013'' file posted on the CMS Web site contained 
errors. This also resulted in errors in Addenda B and C files posted on 
the CMS Web site. These addenda have been corrected as a result of the 
changes made in this correction notice and the corrected Addenda B and 
C files are posted on the CMS Web site. www.cms.gov//PhysicianFeeSched/
.
    Due to a technical error in calculating the anesthesia inputs, the 
PE RVUs for all services reflected in Addenda B and C posted on the CMS 
Web site were inaccurate. Resulting changes to the PE RVUs are 
reflected in the corrected Addenda B and C.
    Due to a technical error, in Addendum B, row 8744 containing CPT/
HCPC 92287 did not list RVUs for use with both the TC and 26 modifiers. 
The corrected Addendum B, which is posted on the CMS Web site at 
www.cms.gov//PhysicianFeeSched/, includes these services and related 
information.
    Due to a technical error in Addendum B, row 9180 containing CPT/
HCPC 93657 did not list a PE RVU. The corrected Addendum B, which is 
posted on the CMS Web site at www.cms.gov//PhysicianFeeSched/ reflects 
this change.
    Due to a technical error in the posting of Addendum C, the ``NA'' 
flags did not display for services when either the facility or 
nonfacility setting did not contain a value. The corrected Addendum C, 
which is posted on the CMS Web site at www.cms.gov//PhysicianFeeSched/, 
reflects the ``NA'' flags for services that are not valued in the 
indicated setting.

III. Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking

    We ordinarily publish a notice of proposed rulemaking in the 
Federal Register to provide a period for public comment before the 
provisions of a rule take effect in accordance with section 553(b) of 
the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). However, we 
can waive this notice and comment procedure if the Secretary finds, for 
good cause, that the notice and comment process is impracticable, 
unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, and incorporates a 
statement of the finding and the reasons therefore in the notice.
    Section 553(d) of the APA ordinarily requires a 30-day delay in the 
effective date of final rules after the date of their publication in 
the Federal Register. This 30-day delay in effective date can be 
waived, however, if an agency finds for good cause that the delay is 
impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, and the 
agency incorporates a statement of the findings and its reasons in the 
rule issued.
    This document merely corrects typographical and technical errors in 
the preamble and addenda of the CY 2013 Physician Fee Schedule final 
rule with comment period. The provisions of that final rule with 
comment period have been subjected to notice and comment procedures. 
The corrections contained in this document are consistent with, and do 
not make substantive changes to, the policies and payment methodologies 
that were adopted in the CY 2013 PFS final rule with comment period. As 
a result, the corrections made through this correcting document are 
intended to ensure that the CY 2013 PFS final rule with comment period 
accurately reflects the policies adopted in that rule. Therefore, we 
find for good cause that it is unnecessary and would be contrary to the 
public interest to undertake further notice and comment procedures to 
incorporate the corrections in this document into the CY 2013 PFS final 
rule with comment period. For the same reasons, we find that there is 
good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effective date for these 
corrections.
    Further, we believe that it is in the public interest to ensure 
that the CY 2013 PFS final rule with comment period accurately reflects 
our policies as of the date they take effect. Therefore, we find that 
delaying the effective date of these corrections beyond the effective 
date of the final rule with comment period would be contrary to the 
public interest. In so doing, we find good cause to waive the 30-day 
delay in effective date.

    a. Line 6, the phrase ``CY 2012'' is corrected to read ``CY 2013.''
    b. Line 8, the phrase ``CY 2012'' is corrected to read ``CY 2013.''
    3. On page 68957, second column, following Table 18 is corrected by 
adding the following:
    ``6. Psychiatry Services
    For CY 2013, the CPT Editorial Panel replaced the current 
psychiatry/psychotherapy CPT codes with a new structure that allows for 
the separate reporting of E/M codes, eliminates codes based upon the 
site-of-service, establishes CPT codes for crisis, and creates a series 
of psychotherapy add-on CPT codes to describe interactive complexity 
and medication management. Many of these services are included in the 
list of Medicare telehealth services. For CY 2013, we did not propose 
any changes in Medicare telehealth payment policies related to the 
existing services described by these new codes. Therefore, the new 
codes describing services currently included on the CY 2012 list of 
Medicare telehealth services will be included on the CY 2013 list of 
Medicare telehealth services.
    In the case of pharmacologic management services, currently on the 
CY 2012 list of Medicare telehealth services, we note that the CPT 
Editorial Panel deleted CPT code 90862 (Pharmacologic management, 
including prescription, use, and review of medication with no more than 
minimal medical psychotherapy), and that for CY 2013, psychiatrists 
will bill the appropriate E/M code when furnishing pharmacologic 
management services. In order to maintain current telehealth policy for 
these services when furnished to inpatients, we are establishing a new 
HCPCS G-code, G0459 (Inpatient telehealth, pharmacologic management, 
including prescription use and review of medication with no more than 
minimal medical psychotherapy), on an interim basis for CY 2013 that 
will describe the pharmacologic management service when furnished via 
telehealth to inpatients.
    We will address any other change in telehealth policy regarding 
psychiatry services in future rulemaking.''.
    4. On page 68959, first column, partial line 5, before the phrase 
``Between 1998-2008,'' is corrected to read as follows: ``We note that 
this number does not represent a discrete number of beneficiaries; 
rather, it represents the total number of beneficiaries receiving 
therapy services under plans of care from different disciplines and 
different providers.''.
    5. On page 68965, third column, third paragraph, lines 4 and 5, the 
phrase ``a composite score'' is corrected to read ``an overall 
composite score.''
    6. On page 68966, third column, second full paragraph, lines 19 
through 21, the phrase ``[hellip]functional measures, such as is done 
with the FOTO Patient tool, for example.'' is corrected to read 
``functional measures.''

    8. On page 69033, in the third column, after second full paragraph, 
is corrected by adding the following:
    ``(14) Needle EMG: Electromyography (CPT Codes 95886, 95887)
    In establishing interim final direct PE inputs for 2012, CMS 
refined the AMA RUC's recommendation for CPT codes 95886 (Needle 
electromyography, each extremity, with related paraspinal areas, when 
performed, done with nerve conduction, amplitude and latency/velocity 
study; complete, five or more muscles studied, innervated by three or 
more nerves or four or more spinal levels (list separately in addition 
to code for primary procedure)) and 95887 (Needle electromyography, 
non-extremity (cranial nerve supplied or axial) muscle(s) done with 
nerve conduction, amplitude and latency/velocity study (list separately 
in addition to code for primary procedure)) by reducing the number of 
service period clinical labor minutes to account for preparatory 
clinical labor tasks associated with both the base and add-on codes. 
CMS also refined the corresponding equipment minutes.
    Comment: Several commenters explained that clinical labor typically 
requires additional time to prepare the distinct equipment used in 
furnishing the services described by the add-on codes.
    Response: After reviewing the information provided by the 
commenters, we agree that it would be appropriate to incorporate 
additional minutes for these codes. Therefore, we are finalizing the 
direct PE inputs for CPT codes 95886 and 95887 with the additional 
refinement of adding two minutes to both the service period clinical 
labor time and the corresponding equipment time. The direct PE inputs 
are displayed in the final CY 2013 direct PE input database, available 
on the CMS Web site under downloads for the CY 2013 PFS final rule at 
www.cms.gov/PhysicianFeeSched/.''.

imaging guidance (ultrasound or fluoroscopy), when performed), along 
with the other related bundled services, we believe a work RVU of 6.29

believe CPT code 37197 involves similar work as CPT code 36247

more selective abdominal, pelvic, or lower extremity artery branch, 
within a vascular family) and should be valued the same. Furthermore, 
we believe a work RVU of 6.29 appropriately reflects the relative 
difference in work between this service and related CPT codes 37191, 
37192, and 37193. The AMA RUC recommended a work RVU of 6.72 for CPT 
code 37197, a direct crosswalk to CPT code 36475 (Endovenous ablation 
therapy of incompetent vein, extremity, inclusive of all imaging 
guidance and monitoring, percutaneous, radiofrequency; first vein 
treated). On an interim final basis for CY 2013, we are assigning a 
work RVU of 6.29 to CPT code 37197.''.
