The AMA has released its summary and an impact analysis of the proposed 2023 Medicare physician fee schedule final rule, unveiled Nov. 2 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The proposed rule reduces the 2023 Medicare conversion factor (CF) by $1.55, or 4.5%, from the 2022 CF of $34.61. The decrease in physician reimbursement is largely the result of an expiring 3% increase funded by Congress through 2022; the remainder is the result of budget neutrality requirements that stem from revised E/M changes. ISMA has joined the AMA and other medical societies in asking Congress to avert this payment cut.
