In regards to 2021, Medicare fee-for-service payments will be adjusted once again for all physicians under MIPS depending on a variety of performance measures.
These include quality, resource use, clinical practice improvement, and advancing care information.
This being stated, CPT codes and their associated RVU metrics still form the foundation on which these adjustments will be made.
Your reimbursement relies on highlighting the medical necessity, risk and complexity, and severity of illness for the care you provide.
