2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Sign-On Letter

October 05, 2020

To: The Honorable Seema Verma, Administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

"These changes also come as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has presented unique challenges for physicians. Many practices are under severe financial duress and many have already closed their doors. While many physicians and specialties providing primarily undervalued E/M services will see major improvements in overall payments even with the budget neutrality adjustment, some will see reductions. We strongly recommend that CMS use its administrative authority to waive budget neutrality for the 2021 Medicare Fee Schedule RVU increases, provided that this would not result in a delay or in any way undermine CMS’s decision to fully implement the E/M increases and other improvements on Jan. 1, 2021."
