2023 Member Input to be Cornerstone of Upcoming Strategic Planning

Members & Publications


March 22, 2023

Over 600 physiatrists completed the AAPM&R Member Survey at the start of this year. Thank you to everyone who took the time to provide input on your needs and priorities as well as the Academy and the specialty.

Your input matters. It has been shared with the AAPM&R Board of Governors and Future Leaders and will be a cornerstone of the upcoming strategic planning process. On March 30-31, the Board and Future Leaders will gather to chart the course for AAPM&R in the coming years.  They will review our current mission, vision, and goals, our recent progress, changes in the healthcare landscape, and–most importantly–your feedback!

We’ll be sharing updates regarding the strategic planning process on social media. The most in-depth coverage will be shared on Instagram Stories to be sure to follow us there. 

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.
