For those of you who completed the Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC) survey at the request of American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians – thank you!! We know that it was long, complicated, and not for the faint of heart.
The RUC survey closed on March 18. The AAFP tells us that 360 AAFP members completed the entire survey and 208 AAFP members completed the physician work component.
According to AAFP CEO Doug Henley, MD, these numbers are excellent. The AAFP far surpassed other medical societies in numbers of survey completions.
Leading up to the RUC meeting later in April, AAFP staff will be on a series of conference calls and hopes to get some ‘data’ as to what the survey results might be pointing to in terms of new Relative Value Units (RVUs) and what might be heading to the RUC for their review and consideration.
Again, to those of you who completed the survey – thank you!
