Adjustment Factors
For all services other than anesthesia:
(These factors have been
2015 Cumulative Relative Value Scale adjustment factor: 1.0703
incorporated into the
[2015 annual adjustment factor x 2014 cumulative adjustment factor = 2015 cumulative adjustment
conversion factors listed
factor (1.006 x 1.0638 = 1.0703)]
below)
2015 RVS adjustment factor
2015 Annual increase in the MEI: 1.008
2015 Annual adjustment factor: 1.006 (0.9981 x 1.008)
For anesthesia services:
2015 Anesthesia cumulative adjustment factor: 1.0461
[2015 anesthesia annual adjustment factor x 2014 anesthesia cumulative adjustment factor = 2015 cumulative adjustment factor (1.001 x 1.0449 = 1.0461)]
2015 Total RVS adjustment factor†: 0.9932
2015 RVU budget neutrality factor: 0.9981
2015 Anesthesia practice expense adjustment factor: 0.99506
2015 Annual increase in the MEI: 1.008
2015 Anesthesia annual adjustment factor: 1.001
[BN RVU x Anesthesia PE Adjustment x MEI = (0.9981 x 0.99506 x 1.008 ) = 1.001]
†RVS adjustment factor for 2015 is 1) the RVU budget neutrality adjustment factor for “all services other
than anesthesia”; and 2) the product of RVU budget neutrality adjustment factor and the anesthesia practice
expense adjustment factor for anesthesia services.
