  1. The resource-based relative value scale methods, results, and impacts for ophthalmology.

    Article - En anglais

    In January 1992, the Health Care Financing Administration implemented sweeping legislation that reformed the way Medicare pays for physicians' services.

    The cornerstone of the reform consists of a new fee schedule based on the Resource-Based Relative Value Scale.

    This article summarizes the methods and data used to derive the scale for ophthalmology.

    The results and impacts of the new Medicare payment rates for ophthalmology are also assessed.

    Using our methods and assumptions, ophthalmologists stand to lose 16% of their Medicare revenues under a fully implemented relative value-based fee schedule.
