As of 2018, we have finally surpassed requirements needed to pursue a seat on the American Medical Association (AMA) RVS Update Committee (RUC)—we’re going for it!
The RUC is one of the key processes by which the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) determines how to value services. Its recommendations to CMS can be accepted, rejected or modified. These decisions have a ripple effect throughout the private insurance market, and can affect compensation.
Holding a RUC Seat will promote the visibility of PM&R in the House of Medicine and also gives our specialty a voice in deliberations about the valuation of codes presented to the RUC.
Your Academy will keep members updated on the results of this effort!
