AAO: Planned Medicare Cuts Deal Heavy Blow to Nation’s Ophthalmologists

© Eyewire News

The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) released a statement opposing the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed annual Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program rule, which sets 2021 Medicare payment rates for physicians and includes changes to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System.

“Ophthalmology lost more patient volume due to the COVID-19 pandemic than any other medical specialty.

Our already weakened health care system can’t take anymore,” the AAO stated in a news release.
