#23 Economic Effects of Medicare Pay Cuts

Orthopaedic surgery is set to face an up to 10% reduction in Medicare reimbursement beginning in 2022. This discussion with a healthcare economist dives into the effects that these cuts will have on physician practices and patient care amidst our nation’s growing healthcare expenditures. Participants discuss the government’s reasoning behind the cuts; unintended consequences on access issues and practice consolidation, as well as how the surgical community can advocate against the devaluing of musculoskeletal care.
