    MGMA statement on proposed 2025 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

    Anders Gilberg
    Senior Vice President, Government Affairs
    Medical Group Management Association

    CMS has again proposed a negative Medicare physician fee schedule update for 2025 with dangerous implications for beneficiary access to care. A 2.8% reduction to the conversion factor would be alarming in the best circumstances, but to propose doing so at a time when 92% of medical groups report increased operating costs and are otherwise struggling to remain financially viable is critically short-sighted. Medicare physician reimbursement is on a dire trajectory and these ongoing cuts continue to undermine the ability of medical practices to keep their doors open and function effectively — the need for comprehensive reform is paramount. MGMA is once again calling on Congress to pass the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act to implement an annual inflation-based physician payment update tied to the Medicare Economic Index, and modernize Medicare’s antiquated budget neutrality policies by enacting the Provider Reimbursement Stability Act.”
