In an effort to better support federal medical research activities and emerging clinical/translational research programs at NIH, AANEM is joining the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) Coalition. Stakeholder organizations and congressional offices also continue to engage with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to promote collaboration that advances policies to reduce fraud and abuse in EDX medicine while promoting access to quality care.


Working for Quality Care and Fair Reimbursement

The AANEM represents nearly 4,500 neuromuscular physicians and other health care providers. We monitor state and federal issues, create position statements to education law makers and insurance companies, fight against fraud and abuse, and advocate for quality patient care.
