To represent a lot of the numbers I have used scientific notation. For instance the number 1300 is represented as 1.3E3. The “E” can be read as “times ten to the power of”. Each unit is written out in full before its abbreviation is used. Some units have superscripts in them, for instance m3. This means cubic metres or “metres to the power of 3”. After some of the conversion factors is another conversion in brackets. This is the conversion for the same measuring system. For instance “foot (ft) to m: 3.048E-1 (12 in)” says that as well as one foot being 0.3048m it is also exactly 12in. A fee schedule  is an all-inclusive list of fees used by Medicare to pay physicians or other providers. This complete list is used to reimburse a physician and or for that matter other providers on a fee-for-service basis. The CMS comes up with fee schedules for physicians, ambulance services, clinical laboratory services, durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and other such supplies. In fact industry leaders and most coders depend on such a Fee Scheduleto deliver the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule details. Physicians and coding specialists in offices, hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, urgent care centers, emergency department and other segments of the medical coding industry are taking up the Fee Schedule tool.  When you go for one, it’ll show you relative value unit (RVU), CPT/HCPCS global information, Medicare code status, some applicable modifiers for a code like 51, 50, 80 and yes the latest on the new conversion factor. So take the help of a ‘Fee schedule’ tool today!

Taking the example of inch (in) to metre (m), the conversion factor is 2.54E-2 (or 0.0254):

  • 12in in metres is 12*0.0254 = 0.305m

Converting the other way round is easy too – just divide by the conversion factor:

  • 3m in inches is 3/0.0254 = 118in

To convert between (say) centimetres (cm) and inches (in) both conversion factors have to be used:

  • 5cm in metres is 5*1E-2 = 0.05m
  • 0.05m in inches is 0.05/2.54E-2 = 1.97in
  • Therefore 5cm = 1.97in

A less involved way to do it would be to click on the title for online canada pharmacy the unit you are interested in to use theunit conversion form for that unit.
