2021 Work RVU CMS Impact Calculator

Member Tool - February 16, 2021

Benchmarking & Forecasting


Data Analytics & Reporting

The 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) final rule, modified by an economic aid law signed Dec. 27, 2020, has numerous impacts for healthcare providers, particularly those coding for outpatient E/M office visits. The 2021 Medicare PFS conversion factor was recalculated at $34.8921, down from $36.09 in 2020. Additionally, some E/M office work RVUs have increased.

This member-benefit tool allows you to calculate two different sets of specialty-specific impacts based on the changes from CMS and Congress:

  1. Entering your specialty and 2020 wRVU value will automatically calculate the wRVU value for 2021 based on the estimates provided in Table 106 of the CMS PFS.
  2. The tool will also show you the estimated combined total RVU impact of the 2021 changes, based on the updated conversion factor of $34.8921.
