Fight for Legislation for Fair Reimbursement for all Medical Specialties!
ZPAC supports the additional valuation of the revised E/M codes, but we want to encourage the Doctors Caucus to fight for additional funding to cover proposed decreases some specialties will be absorbed as a result of the AMA and RUC committee’s recommendations.
- E/M visits make up approximately 20% of the total PFS expenditures.
- This change in care-related E/M code values is estimated to increase reimbursement by approximately $5 billion.
- In the budget-neutral payment system, this means cuts in reimbursement for specialties and providers who typically do not provide such E/M services.
