AANEM has been hard at work to identify strategies and develop resources to respond to the recent Medicare reimbursement cuts.

identifying your top private insurance payers and the average percentage above/below the 2012 Medicare fee schedule you were reimbursed for EMGs and NCSs. If you need to gather the data, please do so before beginning the survey. (View the PDF of questions in advance
) This information will help give us a more accurate perspective on what is happening around the country, as well as a solid basis to support our arguments with private payers on reimbursement issues.
The data we are requesting is from 2012, and is legally permissible for us to collect based on a safe harbor provision in the antitrust laws. Please note that all information will be de-identified and cannot be traced back to any AANEM member, institution, or practice.
This very short survey will take about two minutes of your time. It is extremely important that we receive a high response rate to support our position. Our successful advocacy efforts depend on getting as much information from members as possible.
