Member Appointed to AMA Coding Workgroup

Jane V. White, PhD, RD, LD, FADA, has been appointed to serve on the Multi-Specialty Points of Comparison (MPC) Workgroup under the American Medical Association/Specialty Society RVS Update Committee (RUC).

White currently serves as the Academy’s representative to the RUC HCPAC (Health Care Professional Advisory Committee), whose membership elected her alternate co-chair last year. This appointment represents another step in her progressive leadership role within the RUC and provides yet another opportunity to raise the visibility and respect of RDs within the medical and payer communities.

The RUC makes recommendations to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on the relative values to be assigned to new or revised codes in the Current Procedure Terminology (CPT) book. Values for codes are set based on several factors, such as physician work and practice expense, relative to other codes. The MPC workgroup maintains the list of codes used to compare the relativity of codes under review to existing relative values.

Members can follow highlights of the Academy’s involvement in the AMA CPT and RUC Advisory Committees by reading the Coding and Coverage Committee’s reports to the House of Delegates.

Members interested in nutrition services coding and CPT codes development can contact Marsha Schofield to learn about opportunities to participate in this challenging and rewarding opportunity to advance the dietetics profession.
