CMS pay for orthopedic, neurosurgeons to flatten in 2024 amid cuts


CMS plans to cut the conversion factor for the physician fee schedule by 3.4% in the 2024 calendar year, but how will that affect spine and orthopedic surgeons?

The agency projects overall reimbursement for orthopedic and neurosurgeons will remain flat compared to 2023, according to a report from the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery. ISASS noted in a Dec. 7 letter that policy and individual service charge changes will be "roughly balancing out."

CMS also finalized plans to withdraw appropriate use criteria program regulations, a decision ISASS supports.
