This week AAHKS submitted our comments on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) CY2023 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule. AAHKS comments include a call for CMS to join physician associations in calling on Congress for reform of the conversion factor to remove the requirement for budget neutrality adjustments, which has led to a continued decrease in physician reimbursement; concerns about how valuation of global surgical packages are evaluated; approval of increases in RVUs for 27447 & 27130 for practice expense and malpractice insurance, mostly offsetting the reduction in the 2023 conversion factor, leading to level TJA reimbursement rates for 2023. For more information, please read our letter. AAHKS also signed on to AAOS’s letter, which can be read here.
