Work by the Advocacy and Policy Committee

NANS, through our Advocacy and Policy Committee, has been collaborating with 6 other specialty societies (AAPM, ASA, ASRA, ASIPP,AAPMR, SIS) and legal counsel over the past several months to provide joint comments on MIPS (Merit-Based Incentive Payment System) and APM’s (Alternative Payment Models). We, along with the other participating societies submitted extensive comments regarding the proposed MACRA legislation on behalf of the participating pain community and our membership on June 27, 2016. An additional letter was also crafted and submitted with guidance and support from the American Medical Association (AMA). We wanted to provide you with a copy of the submitted letters for your reference.

NANS was alerted to a request from The Senate Finance Committee to provide comments  specifically addressing if program incentives can be used to promote pain management that may minimize the risk of becoming addicted to opioids. The Senate Finance Committee also asked for recommendations that could expand access to treatment and prevention. AdvaMed & MDMA are also providing comments. The Advocacy and Policy Committee agreed to submit a comment letter to The Senate Finance Committee in response to their request. NANS members can access a copy of this comment letter.
