Members & Publications

May 1, 2024

As a way to feature the amazing work of our early- and mid-career members and the impact they are making in the field of PM&R, we created the new Innovators & Influencers Honoree Program.

In our inaugural year, we are honoring 21 physiatrists who were selected by the Innovators & Influencers Honorees Application Review Workgroup and approved by the Inclusion & Engagement Committee. Read more about these AAPM&R members who have made an impact on the specialty and the lives of their patients.

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.
