ACR Releases Preliminary Radiology-Specific Summary of Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released its 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) Final Rule Nov. 2. The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) has prepared a radiology-specific preliminary summary of the rule, which indicates 32.74 PFS conversion factor in 2024, a $1.14 decrease from the 2023 conversion factor of $33.89.

CMS in its press release says the final rule will expand behavioral health services, advance President Biden’s Cancer Moonshot, and accelerate value-based care. The agency also created a 2024 MPFS fact sheet and a Medicare Shared Savings Program fact sheet.

The College continues to review the proposed rule and will provide a detailed summary in the coming days. If you have questions, contact Angela Kim, ACR Senior Director, Economics and Health Policy.
