AAPM&R has released a new Practice Preparedness resource on me.aapmr.org, Payer Contracts: Assessment, Negotiations and Deal Breakers. Consisting of 3 modules, the activity will teach learners how to get a payer’s attention in negotiating more favorable rates with notice, comparisons, and facts. Learners will also get a high level overview of the ‘deal breakers’ in payer contract language.

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.
