2016 Medicare RBRVS: The Physicians' Guide

On January 8, 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced an emergency update to the CY 2016 Medicare Physician Payment schedule due to the implementation of a technical correction. This correction, which was applied retroactively to January 1, 2016, resulted in mostly minor updates to the Practice Expense Relative Value Units for many services and a change of the 2016 Medicare conversion factor to $35.8043.

The below PDF represents the updated RVU table found in the publication Medicare RBRVS 2016: The Physicians' Guide.
