This final rule implements certain provisions of section 1842(p) of the Social Security Act regarding diagnosis codes on physician bills. Under this final rule, each bill or request for payment for a service furnished by a physician under Medicare Part B must include appropriate diagnostic coding for the diagnosis or the symptoms of the illness or injury for which the Medicare beneficiary received care.
