These applications have different deadlines and may be confusing. We’ll go over the details of each program to help you prepare your applications and submit them on time.

  • The application for Phase 3 of the CARES Act Provider Relief Program is due Friday, November 6. Hear from two members who have applied, get your questions answered and submit your application before the deadline!

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.
