RVU stands for Relative Value Unit, a system used in the USA to determine the value of a medical service in terms of time and effort. Medicare and other payers use RVUs to calculate the amount of money they will reimburse a provider for a medical service. In simple terms, RVUs are a way to measure the amount of work involved in performing a medical service.
