Tell CMS to Reverse Ultrasound Cuts

In the 2023 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) disagrees with the AMA Relative Value Update Committee’s work RVU and PE recommendations related to use of ultrasound.

The drastic cuts proposed by the CMS will directly impact quality care and access for Medicare beneficiaries across multiple specialties.

Let the CMS know the importance of ultrasound technology for timely diagnosis and targeted treatment for rheumatic patients.

Use some of our templated language, but please provide your own unique stories and perspectives on the negative impacts of these cuts should they be implemented.

The comment period for this action to CMS has closed. We thank all our advocates who submitted messages.

Stay tuned for future updates on this issue and how you can help ACR advocacy efforts!
