Today after much hard work and diligence, ISASS was awarded a seat at the table of the House of Delegates (HOD) of the AMA. Gunnar Andersson, MD, PhD, ISASS President was handed a clicker and began voting on your behalf. "Today ISASS became a member of the AMA House of Delegates, this gives us a seat at the table of the organization that makes decisions at the [Current Procedural Terminology] and [Relative Value Scale Update] Committees," said Anderrson of this accomplishment.
The CPT Editorial Panel is engaged in an ongoing process improvement effort which currently includes re-examination of the CPT Category I and Category III criteria.
This is a very significant milestone for ISASS it is important for ISASS members and their patients that a representative working in the best interest of spine surgery is able to have a voice.
