Join CMS for a Webinar Focused on Quality Measures

We are committed to improving quality, safety, accessibility, and affordability of healthcare for all and excited to offer an opportunity to learn more about quality measures.

On June 13, from 12:00-1:00pm, ET, CMS will host the second webinar, of a two-part series, that covers an introduction to quality measures, overview of the measure development process, and how providers, patients, and families can be involved. If you are unable to attend during this time, the same session will be offered again on June 14, from 4:00-5:00 pm, ET. CMS is looking for your feedback and participation in the quality measure community, so please join us during the webinar to hear updates and how you can be a part of the process!

Please note that the two opportunities listed are for the same session; we ask that you only register for one of the sessions. 

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.
