    Help SCAI Develop PVAD Physician Work RVU Recommendations—RUC Survey

    June 21, 2019

    On June 20th all U.S. based SCAI members were emailed a link to complete a survey assessing the physician work necessary to perform percutaneous ventricular assist device implantation services. The email subject line is “Help ACC & SCAI, Complete PVAD RVU Survey”. Annual updates to the physician work relative values are based on recommendations from the Relative Value Scale Update Committee, and data from these surveys are used to determine Medicare payments. The survey should take 15–30 minutes. Access instructions for accurate survey completion and learn more through this video. Contact Dawn Gray at dgray@scai.org with any questions.
