ACR Leads Effort to Retain Increase to Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

In an effort to maintain stability of Medicare physician payment, the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) led an effort to send an organizational sign-on letter urging congressional leadership to retain the 3.75% increase to the conversion factor (CF) contained in the federal fiscal year (FY) 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule through FY 2023. The letter was signed by 109 organizations representing more than one million providers nationwide.

The ACR will work with these organizations to explore more opportunities to educate Congress about the need to extend the CF increase, protecting access to timely healthcare.
