Drs. Scott Horn represented ISIS at the AMA CPT Editorial Panel Meeting which took place January 30-February 2, 2013.  Dr. David O’Brien, Chair of the ISIS Coding and Reimbursement Subcommittee was also in attendance. The CPT Editorial Panel is in charge of the development and revisions of CPT codes.

Dr. Christopher Merifield represented ISIS at the AMA Relative Value Update Committee (RUC) meeting January 23-26, 2013. RUC is a multi-specialty advisory body to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), charged with recommending relative value units (RVUs); which, in turn, determine the reimbursement level for each CPT code. CMS accepts a very high percentage of the 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 spine interventions are discussed.
