ASNC Submits AUC Mandate for New House Ways & Means Committee Rollback Project

ASNC has submitted the AUC Mandate as a program to be considered as part of the House Ways & Means Committee's new Medicare Red Tape Relief Project
The project, announced in July, is aimed at rolling back burdensome “Medicare regulations and mandates that too often stand in the way of delivering quality patient care.”

ASNC outlined the considerable administrative burden and costs associated with the AUC Mandate, noted the robust AUC measures already included in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program and pointed out that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has proposed allowing consultation of AUC to count as an improvement activity for MIPS.
