Payer Advocacy

The AASM advocates on behalf of members, to encourage payers to align medical policies with AASM practice standards.  This will, in turn, ensure that patients receive high-quality, evidence-based care from appropriately trained and licensed healthcare professionals.

Members are encouraged to submit medical policies that do not align with AASM practice standards to coding@aasm.org
