This year, the College of American Pathologists coordinated a sustained lobbying campaign against Medicare payment cuts to pathologists in 2021. That campaign is paying off, with news that Congress will mitigate the cut by adding $3 billion to next year’s Medicare fee schedule and delaying implementation of a new evaluation and management add-on code for three years (the implementation delay is expected to restore roughly 3 percent to pathologists each year). The result amounts to $85 million more for pathologists in 2021, according to an analysis by the CAP.

This new status of “Retired” will allow those former diplomates to remain certified.

As pathology departments across the world continue to provide patient care during the
pandemic, academic institutions are finding creative ways to facilitate education.
