Look Out For RUC Surveys on PCI, LAA Services

In the coming weeks, you may be randomly selected to complete a survey for the American Medical Association's (AMA's) Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC). Survey participants will be asked to estimate the typical time, intensity and complexity of their work and the Relative Value Unit (RVU) for the procedure in comparison to a list of reference services with established RVUs. Feedback from these surveys are used to create AMA recommendations to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Upcoming surveys will look at the PCI family of codes and the existing code for percutaneous transcatheter closure of the left atrial appendage (LAA), respectively. Check your email folders for survey emails from Matt Minnella via a noreply@qemailserver.com email address. The deadline for both surveys is Tuesday, March 12. Learn more about the RUC process here.
