AANEM advocacy efforts in Washington DC are starting to pay off. Following extensive lobbying by the AANEM State Liaisons, Advocacy Advisors, staff, and representatives from the Health and Medicine Counsel of Washington, we are proud to announce that we were able to successfully obtain language in the Senate Appropriations bill requiring the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to respond, on record, to the question, “What have they done in response to the 2014 OIG Report on EDX Medicine?”. 


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.

Position Statements

Use these position statements when communicating with legislators, payers, and other medical professionals.

Fraud & Abuse

Familiarize yourself with the avenues that can be taken to report suspected fraud or abuse. 

Action Center 

Participate in legislative action alerts and contact U.S. senators and representatives on important health policy issues.
