The American Academy of Neurology strongly opposes the elimination of inpatient and outpatient consultation services codes. Without Congressional intervention, this elimination will take effect January 1, 2010.
The AAN is organizing a grassroots effort to contact your Congress people to delay implementation of this policy. An "Action Alert" was emailed to all US Academy members on December 7, 2009, asking them to contact their member of Congress in opposition of the elimination of these consultation codes.
If you have not yet done so, please take two minutes and log in to Vocus to tell your representative that you oppose the elimination of inpatient and outpatient service codes.
