American Academy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (AAPM&R)
The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation was founded in 1938. Exclusively serving the needs of today’s physical medicine and rehabilitation physician, AAPM&R has over 8,000 members. PM&R physicians are nerve, muscle, bone and brain experts who treat injury or illness nonsurgically to decrease pain and restore function.
The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation serves its member physicians by advancing the specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation, promoting excellence in physiatric practice, and advocating on public policy issues related to persons with disabling conditions.
Recognizing the many challenges faced by practicing in today’s health care environment, AAPM&R has gathered and developed a menu of resources to help members market the specialty or their practice, request proper reimbursement, stay updated on practice guidelines, and manage their practice of PM&R. Resources specific to PM&R include:
- Coding and Billing
- Compensation Data
- CMS-Qualified Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Registry
