SIS Represented at Coding and Reimbursement Meetings

Monday, October 17, 2016  
The Spine Intervention Society was represented by Drs. Scott Horn and Luis Guerrero at the American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) Editorial Panel meeting on September 29 - October 1, 2016. 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.

Members were also represented at the October 5-9 AMA/Specialty Society Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC) meeting. 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.
