CMS Issues Locale-Specific Anesthesia Conversion Factors for 2013
CMS has issued locale-specific anesthesia conversion factors for services provided in 2013. They are based on the unadjusted conversion factor of $15.93. Please note the factors are published prior to any Congressional action on the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR), or "doc fix" and therefore are subject to change.
Stay tuned for an upcoming ASA Grassroots Network action alert on the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate.
