I am at the end of my medicare op-out period. I am not enrolled as a provider in any medicare plan yet. I know that I can no longer private contract with medicare patients, but When I do the CMS search I come up with multiple columns of prices. I believe that I would be non-facility as an independent private practitioner. Then there are still several dollar amounts that are listed such as limiting charge. So ... what column do I use to charge medicare patients when my opt-out term is over.
Thanks but, these are the four columns that are returned with the search:
1 NON-FACILITY PRICE
2 FACILITY PRICE
3 NON-FACILITY LIMITING CHARGE
4 FACILITY LIMITING CHARGE
Each have a different $value. So I have the narrowed the field to #1 or #3.
