Surgical Care Coalition Launches a Week of Action
The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS), along with 10 other national surgical associations, formed the Surgical Care Coalition (SCC) to prevent steep Medicare payment cuts in 2021. Throughout the week of Sept. 21, surgeons from across the country took steps to raise awareness about the cuts and urged Congress to take action before the end of the year. Paid digital advertising, op-eds, grassroots activism, an educational webinar and a national radio tour were among the activities undertaken during the week of action.
To stay informed about the SCC’s activities, neurosurgeons are encouraged to sign-up for the coalition’s advocacy newsletter. Newsletters published on Aug. 27, Sept. 11, Sept. 25 and Oct. 1 highlight the group’s recent activities.
