      The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services uses a resource-based relative value (RBRV) scale to calculate payments for physicians. The values of the scale were validated with predictive modeling, and the result may be helpful in two key applications: flagging codes as potentially misvalued and determining why a code is valued differently than by: 5. RVUs are the basic component of the Resource-Based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS), which is a methodology used by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and private payers to determine physician payment. RVUs, or relative value units, do not directly define physician compensation in dollar amounts.
