The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) releases the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) Final Rule each calendar year (CY). The final rule provides updated CMS policies and regulations affecting many factors, such as the calculation of payment rates, misvalued codes and other regulatory actions. The CY 2021 MPFS made significant cuts to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA) in addition to cuts to the Conversion Factor (CF) which significantly impacts orthopaedic surgeons.

 

This webinar will go over in detail the specifics from the CY 2021 MPFS, how we got to this point, and what is being done to rectify the reduced RVUs for TKA and THA and lessen the impact on orthopaedic surgeons.

 

At the conclusion of this webinar, learners should be able to:

·         Understand the key highlights of MPFS Final Rule affecting orthopaedic surgeons

·         Recognize the reduced reimbursement impact from decreased RVUs for TKA and THA procedures
