ACR Seeks Responses to Dorsal Sacroiliac Joint Arthrodesis RUC Survey

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) disseminated an American Medical Association/Specialty Society Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC) survey regarding Dorsal Sacroiliac Joint Arthrodesis to a random group of ACR members. This survey involves one new common procedural terminology (CPT®) code.

If you receive a survey, you will be prompted to apply your clinical expertise as you respond to time and value questions related to the given procedure. Survey data will be aggregated, analyzed and presented at the January 2023 RUC meeting. Values approved by the RUC are relayed to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for review and final valuation in the 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.

The College is collaborating with several societies on this survey, including the Society of Interventional Radiology, American Society of Anesthesiologists, American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, and the North American Neuromodulation Society.

ACR members that receive multiple surveys from the ACR and one of these other societies for the same code family should only complete one survey.

Survey recipients are asked to complete it as soon as possible, as there is a short survey cycle. ACR values your active participation in our efforts to provide representative data to CMS.

If you have questions or for more information, please email Christy Buranaamorn, ACR Senior Economic Policy Analyst, or call 800-227-5463, ext. 5653.
