Reimbursement Updates

Feb 12, 2016
  • Your Reimbursement and Policy Review Committee (RPRC) will hold its annual in-person committee meeting on March 18-19, 2016.
  • Your Academy’s Innovative Payment and Practice Models (IPPM) Work Group is in the process of developing a white paper describing a model for spine care that is supported by outcomes and economic data. We anticipate this project will yield a testable model that your Academy can propose to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to gain acceptance as a qualified alternative payment model (APM) that satisfies MACRA requirements. The following Academy members are serving on a technical advisory panel to inform the project: Stuart Glassman, MD; Anthony Lee, MD; Chris Standaert, MD; and Santosh Thomas, MD. Additional members and stakeholders will be consulted during the project as needed.
