ISIS Represented at the AMA RUC and CPT Editorial Panel Meeting

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Dr. Scott Horn represented ISIS at the AMA CPT Editorial Panel Meeting on October 14-16. The CPT Editorial Panel is a multi-specialty committee, in charge of the development and revisions of CPT codes. It is a very important venue to assure that our members' best interests are represented as coding issues are discussed.

Dr. Christopher Merifield represented ISIS at the AMA Relative Value Update Committee (RUC) meeting September 29-October 3rd. RUC is an advisory body to CMS, charged with assigning relative value units (RVUs); which, in turn, determine the payment levels by CMS for each CPT code. Historically, CMS has accepted 96% or more of RUC’s value recommendations.

ISIS assures physician volunteer and staff representation at each CPT and RUC meeting, in order to provide knowledgeable input, when coding and value decisions that affect ISIS members are discussed.
