AUGS HIGHLIGHTS


President's perspective: AUGS Health Policy Education Survey
AUGS
The AUGS Health Policy Committee works hard to advocate for healthcare policy decisions that can directly impact reimbursement of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. The information they obtain directly impacts the members of AUGS.

The AUGS Health Policy Quality and Coding Subcommittees would like to know how you, as a member of AUGS, would like to receive information and education regarding emerging health policy changes, including changes in reimbursement, quality reporting, alternative payment models, the future of Medicare reimbursements, ICD-10 coding, and requirements.

Please take a few moments to complete the brief survey below so that we can customize content and the delivery method.

If you have any additional questions or comments, please contact AUGS staff at info@augs.org, or call 202-367-1167.
