We’re Seeking a Choosing Wisely® Academy Champion

Members & Publications


December 9, 2016

Do you utilize AAPM&R’s Choosing Wisely® list in your practice? If yes, we want to hear from you! We are looking for a Choosing Wisely® Champion. The Choosing Wisely® Champions program launched in March 2016 to recognize clinicians who are leading efforts to reduce overuse and waste in medicine. The program was created to acknowledge the work of those dedicated to providing appropriate care and encourage others to follow their lead. Champions are selected by participating societies and include clinicians or teams of clinicians whose work in their specialty represents significant contributions to advancing the goals of the campaign. Please email healthpolicy@aapmr.org if you would like more information.

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.
