The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has recalculated the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule payment rates and conversion factor for calendar year 2021 to reflect changes effective Dec. 27 under the Consolidated Appropriations Act.

The new conversion factor is $34.89, which is 3.3% less than the CY 2020 conversion factor of $36.09 but more than the $32.26 conversion factor finalized in the PFS final rule, which would have represented a 10.2% net decrease in PFS payments for CY 2021.
