Summary of MPFS CY2021 and Call to Action for Audiology

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the final 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) on December 2, 2020. Unfortunately, CMS failed to provide relief from a significant shift in physician and non-physician payments slated to take effect on January 1, 2021. This change is estimated to impact audiology services by -6 percent.
