Free Webinar: 2016 CPT® Coding Update: What Code Changes Will Affect PM&R Practice?

Members & Publications


December 23, 2015

Several changes to payment policy and coding and reimbursement are set to take effect in 2016. One catalyst for these changes is the calendar year (CY) 2016 Medicare physician fee schedule (MPFS) final rule, which the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released in November 2014. Concurrently, the American Medical Association (AMA) released Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code changes and revisions for 2016, which physicians and other qualified health care professionals will use as a guide to appropriately code for services rendered to patients. This webinar will focus on coding updates particularly relevant to physiatrists starting in 2016.

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
