896,211questions on

Resource-based relative value scale (RBRVS) is a schema used to determine how much money medical providers should be paid. Medicare reimbursements under the RBRVS are on the Medicare physician (provider) fee schedule (MPFS or simply PFS). The MPFS is the maximum amount of reimbursement that Medicare will allow for a service. With all the factors, the MPFS is calculated through this formula: [(WORK RVU) (WORK GPCI) + (PE RVU) (PE GPCI) + (MP RVU) (MP GPCI)] = (SUM) * CF = MPFS.
