The CMS adjusts the fee schedule amounts annually to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers (CPI-U) (U.S. city average) and the 10-year moving average of changes in annual economy-wide private nonfarm business multi-factor productivity, unless alternative updates are specified by legislation. The CMS communicates this information via an annual recurring update notification (RUN). The CMS also determines, publishes for contractor use, and places on its web site, coding and pricing changes. This information is updated on an annual basis.
