Billing and Coding Subcommittee

The Billing and Coding Subcommittee under the Practice Management and Regulatory Affairs Committee (PMRAC) advises the PMRAC on payment policy and regulatory issues that deal with physician payment, including the development and response to code change applications. Subcommittee members will also help educate members about proper coding and answer questions from ASAM members about coding and payment. The Subcommittee assists ASAM's CPT advisor in reviewing proposed codes issues and policies from the AMA’s CPT Editorial Panel and developing coding proposals that advance the needs of addiction specialists. This subcommittee will function as ASAM's Specialty RVS Committee, as required by the RUC's guidelines for specialty societies.
