  • During its annual House of Delegates meeting in Chicago, the AMA passed Resolution 214, which backs the ACR's attempt to repeal a U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid rule that applies a 25% multiple procedure payment reduction (MPPR) to interpretations of contingent body parts.

    The resolution will add to ACR's MPPR advocacy effort in Congress, where two pieces of legislation, HR 3269 and S 2347, are enjoying bipartisan support among lawmakers, ACR said.
