Updated Medicare Anesthesia Conversion Factors for 2022
Mon, Dec. 27, 2021

ASA's work in conjunction with others in the medical community has resulted in mitigation cuts to Medicare payment by reducing the announced cut to the conversion factor, some easing of the 2% sequestration cut and elimination of the 4% PAYGO cut. The 2022 national anesthesia conversion factor will be $21.5623 rather than $20.9343 as previously announced. A list of the locale specific Medicare Anesthesia Conversion Factors is available here. These conversion factors will be used in calculating payment for anesthesia services provided on/after January 1, 2022
