Drs. Christopher Merifield and Kieran Slevin represented ISIS at the AMA Relative Value Update Committee (RUC) meeting on January 29-February 2. The RUC is an advisory body to CMS which reviews medical procedures and provides Relative Value Unit (RVU) recommendations to CMS.

Dr. Scott Horn represented ISIS at the CPT© Editorial Panel meeting, which took place February 5-9. Several coding proposals of importance to ISIS members were discussed at this meeting.

ISIS assures physician volunteer and staff representation at both the CPT© Editorial Panel and RUC meetings and active participation in all their respective processes in order to provide input and justification for proper values and coding when issues that affect spine interventions are discussed.
