Code-Specific Impact Tables Illustrate Proposed Reimbursement Changes

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) created impact tables that convey how the 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) proposed rule would affect payments for radiology-related tests and procedures.

The rule would negatively affect many medical imaging payment rates if accepted without modification by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The College is working with other provider organizations to urge congressional leadership to mitigate the proposed 3.4% decrease to the conversion factor contained in the rule for 2024.

The tables cover specific changes in reimbursement rates and relative value units between 2023 and 2024 for each Current Procedural Terminology® (CPT®) code. The ACR analysis includes spreadsheets for the 70,000 series CPT codes and the non-70,000 CPT codes billed by radiologists, interventional radiologists and/or radiation oncologists.

Questions about the MPFS proposed rule impacts should be directed to Katie Keysor, ACR Senior Director of Economic Policy.
