A Practical Guide to Rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis

Members & Publications


October 23, 2019

Rehabilitation is an integral part of comprehensive multiple sclerosis (MS) care. Represented by Anjali N. Shah, MD, FAAPMR, AAPM&R has entered a partnership with a coalition of multiple sclerosis-focused organizations who have created A Practical Guide to Rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis: 2nd Edition. This highly interactive ePrimer is designed to equip the multidisciplinary rehab team with practical, evidence-based information they can use to optimize the benefits derived from rehab services for their patients with MS. The content is augmented with faculty commentary to listen to, patient cases to follow, and a Patient Education Guide providing strategies and tools that can aid increased communication between clinician and patient. Learners can receive AMA, MOC and CNE credit for participation.

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.
