As AASM President Dr. Patrick Strollo, MD, noted Wednesday in a special update to members, the AASM is conducting a comprehensive review of the 2011 Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule and will provide members with an analysis very soon.

The AASM also is contacting CMS regarding several areas within the Final Rule that require clarification.

A comprehensive action plan will be provided to members after the AASM board of directors meets Monday, Nov. 15, for an emergency session.

Members are encouraged to post any questions on the 2011 Final Rule discussion forum on the AASM website.
