ACOG’s Latest on Physician Payment


As a part of continued efforts to ensure equitable payment and decreased administrative burden for obstetrician-gynecologists, ACOG submitted comprehensive comments on the 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

ACOG also authored a multispecialty letter encouraging CMS to finalize the obstetric global codes and petitioning CMS to reconsider the cuts to gynecologic surgery.

Our work on equitable payment rates for maternity and surgical care continues: follow along here to see ACOG’s advocacy efforts.
