The Spine Intervention Society was represented by Drs. Scott Horn, Luis Guerrero, and Timothy Maus at the American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) Editorial Panel meeting on September 14-16, 2017. The Panel is in charge of the development and revisions of procedure codes mandated by the U.S. Federal government. It convenes meetings three times per year to solicit the direct input of practicing physicians, medical device manufacturers, developers of the latest diagnostic tests, and advisors from societies like SIS. In addition, SIS was represented by staff at the AMA/Specialty Society Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC) meeting October 4-7, 2017. The RUC is an advisory body to the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services that reviews medical procedures and provides Relative Value Unit (RVU) recommendations.
