Last week Anthem BCBS opted to terminate its planned 25 percent reimbursement cut to E/M services appended with modifier-25 that was slated to begin in Colorado on March 1. CSEPS resisted this proposal and joined other physician organizations in advocating against the proposed policy. The original plan was for a cut of 50%, but withering opposition stalled and then ultimately defeated the proposal. Anthem said that it would notify its contracted providers of this decision in the coming days.
