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