Coding and Reimbursement

The AASM offers several tools to support members with matters of coding and reimbursement. Refer to the AASM’s resources to strengthen your operations.

Payment Reform

Healthcare payment reform is complex. Two key drivers are the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) and the AMA CPT and RUC processes. Use these pages to effectively understand changes to payment reform and how to integrate new measures into your sleep practice.

The AASM encourages members to become a part of the AMA. By maintaining AMA and AASM membership, you provide us with the opportunity to represent sleep medicine in the AMA House of Delegates, the principle policy-making body in the AMA and a key influencer on the US healthcare system. Your dual AMA and AASM memberships also allow us to give a voice to sleep medicine within the CPT Editorial Panel and RUC processes, which ensures that sleep medicine codes are developed and valued appropriately. Join or renew your AMA membership today. We thank you for your support.
