CMS has released the updated fee schedule that includes the 2.2% increase in the CF, effective June 1.
The good news is that the CF increased. The bad news is that for several procedures, the RVU values decreased. For example, 51798 (Measurement of post-voiding residual urine and/or bladder capacity by ultrasound, non-imaging) went from 1.23 to 1.2 (a decrease of 2.44%).
