Dr. Christopher Merifield represented ISIS at the AMA Relative Value Update Committee (RUC) meeting October 3-6, 2012. 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. CMS accepts a very high percentage of the RUC’s value recommendations.


Drs. Scott Horn represented ISIS at the AMA CPT Editorial Panel Meeting which took place on October 11-13, 2012. The CPT Editorial Panel is a multi-specialty committee, in charge of the development and revisions of CPT codes.


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 spine interventions are discussed.
