On August 4, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published the annual Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule. The rule describes proposed payment and policy changes for 2021.
This year, the rule included several proposals which could significantly impact physiatry. CMS estimates that the proposals in this rule, if implemented, would result in a 3 percent cut to payment for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Because of the variability across our membership, we expect the exact impact on individual practices may vary substantially.
