In the past few years, the ACR has been very active in proposing new and revised CPT codes for rheumatology procedures and services based on new technology and changes in practice as well as responding to requests from CMS and the AMA. Additionally, there has been equal involvement with surveying new and revised codes to develop recommended values for presentation to the RUC. Also, the ACR frequently works in collaboration with other key specialty societies on related CPT and RUC issues.

As the work continues in this key area for billing and reimbursement, we need your involvement! The ACR along with the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Academy of Family Physicians will jointly send out survey requests for the AMA Specialty Society/Relative Value Scale Update Committee later on and throughout the year. The codes under review for the RUC include therapeutic injections SC/IM (96372) and IV push (96374). If you perform these services and receive the survey, please take a few minutes to complete it.
