The Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) is the annual regulatory rule released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that updates the standards for physician reimbursement and policies related to the delivery of health care. While the fee schedule and regulations are for services for Medicare beneficiaries, Medicaid programs and private insurers utilize them as standards for their own payment rates and coverage policies.

Below are summaries of the direct impacts of recent MPFS rules on obstetrician-gynecologists' practices. For questions, please visit ACOG’s Payment Advocacy and Policy Portal.
