The purpose of this grant is to support multi-site research topics related to rehabilitation following spinal cord injury. The grant must include collaborative multi-site research with 3 or more of the NIDILRR-funded SCIMS centers. The proposed research must be designed to contribute to outcomes of individuals with spinal cord injury in one or more of these domains: health and function, community living and participation, and employment.

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.
