Resource Based Relative Value Units (RBRVU) are used to assign a Relative Value Unit (RVU) multiplier to the physician's work (including the physician's time and amount of skill required for the procedure), the practice's supplies & overhead and the malpractice expense.

Payment varies based on the zip code of the location where services are rendered using a Geographic Practice Cost Index (GPCI) multiplier which changes every quarter with the intention of eventually paying all docs the same amount no matter where they do business across the nation.

The formula for 2016 physician fee schedule payment amount is as follows:

2016 Non-Facility Pricing Amount =
[(Work RVU * Work GPCI) +
(Non-Facility PE RVU * PE GPCI) +
(MP RVU * MP GPCI)] * Conversion Factor (CF)
2016 Facility Pricing Amount =
[(Work RVU * Work GPCI) +
(Facility PE RVU * PE GPCI) +
(MP RVU * MP GPCI)] * Conversion Factor

Quick! Use this formula to determine how much Medicare pays for an Office Visit, Established Patient 99213 performed at your location! .. or use our RVU Lookup tool and find it in a snap!
