The Quality Outcomes and Coding and Reimbursement Committees work to ensure that policymakers in our nation’s capitol support education and research programs for female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. These Committees enhances the effectiveness of these efforts by educating members and working in collaboration with allied organizations, patient advocacy groups, and health care professionals.
Efforts focus on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and their policies affecting urogynecologists. The advocacy program will continue to educate the AUGS membership about policies that may affect them and empower them to influence these policies.
