ASA is pleased to present the annual commercial conversion factor survey for 2013. Each summer we anonymously survey anesthesiology practices across the country asking them to report up to five of their largest managed care (commercial) contract conversion factors (CFs) and the percentage each contract represents of their commercial population, along with some demographic information. Our objectives on the survey are to report to our members the average contractual amounts for the top five contracts and to present a regional survey of trends in commercial contracting.
Based on the 2013 ASA commercial conversion factor survey results, the national average commercial conversion factor was $71.69, ranging between $70.33 and $73.82 for the five contracts. The national median was $67.61, ranging between $66 and $69 for the five contracts (Figure 1, Table 1). In the 2012 survey, the mean conversion factor ranged between $64.80 and $71.44, and the median ranged between $61.70 and $68. In contrast, the current national Medicare conversion factor for anesthesia services is $21.92, or just 30.6 percent of the 2013 overall mean commercial conversion factor.
