ACR Launches Time-Sensitive January 2023 RUC Survey

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) is launching an American Medical Association/Specialty Society Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC) survey about Fractional Flow Reserve with CT to a random group of ACR members. This survey involves one new CPT code.

Survey data will be aggregated, analyzed and presented at the January RUC meeting. Values approved by the RUC will be relayed to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for review and final valuation in the 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.

The survey involves collaboration with the American College of Cardiology and Society for Cardiovascular Computed Tomography. If an ACR member receives multiple surveys from the ACR and one of these other societies for the same code family, please only complete one.

Due to the short survey cycle, the ACR requests that those who receive a survey complete it as soon as possible. Active involvement from ACR members is essential to provide CMS with representative physician work and time recommendations. Your participation is appreciated.

If you have questions or for more information, email Christy Buranaamorn, ACR RUC staff member, or call 800-227-5463, ext. 5653.
