    *Anesthesia Conversion Factor

    Due to ASA efforts, the 2008 Medicare anesthesia conversion factor increased from $16.19 in 2007 to $19.97 in 2008. Using the QCDR calculator metrics, physician anesthesiologists bill approximately 12,000 units per year and nearly 27 percent of those are to Medicare resulting in an average of $11,340 increase in payments for services provided to Medicare beneficiaries. This increase has exponentially grown each year due to annual incremental increases.
