Effects of lower surgical fees on the use of physician services under medicare.
Background and objective.-
The changes in physician fees that will occur under the resource-based Medicare Fee Schedule (MFS) are similar to those that took place under the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987 (OBRA 87), when Medicare fees for selected « overpriced » procedures and diagnotic tests were reduced.
To again insight regarding the changes in utilization that may occur under the MFS, this study examines the effects of the OBRA 87 fee reductions on the use of physician services by Medicare patients.
