Members & Publications


June 19, 2017

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires Medicare physicians to periodically revalidate their Medicare enrollment information, which was not required in the past. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has posted a Special Edition Article that updates physicians on the need to revalidate their Medicare enrollment, how to do so, when to do so, and the consequences of not revalidating.

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.
