ACC 2021 Physician Fee Schedule Calculator Now Available

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) posted a revised file on Jan. 4, 2021 that rendered several RVU inputs and the conversion factor outdated due to changes required by recent COVID-19 emergency legislation. Revisions to the calculator file are complete and the version now posted here reflects those updates.

Work, practice expense and liability relative value units (RVUs) are updated annually through Medicare physician fee schedule rulemaking. In response to the recently finalized 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and related addenda, the ACC developed a new Physician Fee Schedule Calculator. This tool allows clinicians and practice managers to estimate the impacts of the slated changes to practices. Over time, the goal of the tool is to help facilitate a thorough understanding of impacts from one year to the next. Download the tool.
