Private Contracting/Opting out of Medicare

With the recent changes to Medicare reimbursement and reporting requirements, many physicians are asking whether they should continue as Medicare participating physicians or whether they should stop accepting Medicare altogether. While the answer to the above will depend on each physician’s practice, physicians should make an informed decision as to whether they enroll as a participating or non-participating physician or whether they should “opt out” altogether and contract privately with their Medicare-eligible patients.
