  1. Assessing the implementation of physician-payment reform.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    The Medicare program fundamentally changed its system of payment for physicians' services in 1992.

    Controversy over the new Medicare fee schedule has focused on three issues:

    • the adequacy of the conversion factor used to translate resource-based relative-value units into fees;

    • the ability of the new payment system to capture differences in work between surgeons and physicians in other specialties;

    • and the allocation of practice expenses across services.

    Methods

    Using a standard service in each specialty, we developed simulation methods to assess the implementation of physician-payment reform.
