QPPR Confirms AAOS Guideline

Members & Publications


April 3, 2017

AAPM&R's Quality, Practice, Policy, and Research (QPPR) Committee affirmed the AAOS guideline on Osteoarthritis of the Hip. The Clinical Practice Guidelines Committee (CPG) reviewed the guideline and recommended the Academy affirm and not endorse because the guideline lacked clear auditing criteria and limiting evidence for arthroscopy.  

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.
