Webinar replay: Medicare physician fee schedule reform – structural topics and recommendations

This webinar was held on June 13, 2024.

HMA recently released a report on the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) with background on the structure of the program, and recommendations for reforms that could be considered. This webinar provided background and context about the PFS for interested parties who may be less familiar with the payment system and why the stakeholder community got to the point of needing to “fix” the fee schedule. We discussed pressing policy and payment concerns, provided an overview of key structural issues within the PFS that should be considered and balanced when making policy changes to the payment system, highlighted different stakeholder perspectives, and offered recommendations within CMS authority.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the background, context and function of the PFS including its relationship to other payment systems.
  • Highlight key policy developments over time leading to the current focus on “fixing” the payment system.
