Ama Policy

Uncoupling Commercial Fee Schedules from Medicare Conversion Factors D-400.990

Fee Schedules

Our AMA: (1) shall use every means available to convince health insurance companies and managed care organizations to immediately uncouple fee schedules from Medicare conversion factors and to maintain a fair and appropriate level of reimbursement; and (2) will seek legislation and/or regulation to prevent managed care companies from utilizing a physician payment schedule below the updated Medicare professional fee schedule.
