We examined the effects or Resource-based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS)-and physician diagnosis-related groups (MDDRG)-based payment for anesthesiology services related to surgery by simulating these physician payment reform options.
We merged Medicare Part A (hospital) and Part B (anesthesiology) payment data for 7,770 patients for the MDDRG analysis and examined 10,431 surgical procedures for the RBRVS analysis within 27 diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) during the second half of 1986 in 16 hospitals representing different geographic regions, bed size, and teaching status.
