2013 Coding Changes
The AANEM is working with its partners, including the American Academy of Neurology and the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, to communicate with CMS about the significant impact its RVU decisions will have on patient access and quality care. It also has reached out to patient groups and others who might be affected by these reductions.

AANEM Sends Coalition Letter to Congress
The AANEM works with national organizations to shape reimbursement policies and advocates for its members through its involvement in the American Medical Association's Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and Relative Value Scale Update Committees (RUC).
The AANEM Policy Department routinely reviews and comments on Correct Coding Initiative (CCI) edits, physician work values, and proposed and final rules issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS).
These activities help ensure that CPT codes and reimbursement rates accurately reflect the work performed by electrodiagnostic physicians.
