We, along with the other participating societies submitted extensive comments regarding the proposed MACRA legislation on behalf of the participating pain community and our membership on June 27,2016. An additional letter was also crafted and submitted with guidance and support from the American Medical Association (AMA). We wanted to provide you with a copy of the submitted letters for your reference.
