Vascular Annual Meeting Begins May 30
Many of your colleagues have registered for the 2013 Vascular Annual Meeting, are you among them?  Registration is outpacing last year's figures for the premier vascular surgery educational event being held May 30 - June 1 in San Francisco. The housing bureau is closed, but there are still hotel rooms available, so make your reservations today. When making your travel plans, check the schedule-at-a-glance to view the exciting educational sessions which the SVS Program Committee has planned and book your airline reservation accordingly.
Keep Informed of Vascular Annual Meeting Events
If you are unable to attend the Vascular Annual Meeting, the daily show newspaper, Vascular Connections, will be posted daily http://www.vascularspecialistonline.com/vascular-annual-meeting.html. Read about the President's Address, award winners, the latest research being presented and more.
FEVAR Coverage
The SVS Health Policy Committee sent a letter to the Medicare Administrative Contractor Wisconsin Physicians Service Insurance Corporation (WPS Medicare) on Fenestrated Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (FEVAR) coverage in their area of jurisdiction. WPS determined that coverage for the FEVAR CPT codes 0078T-0081T is allowed for patients meeting FDA-approved criteria. Their local coverage determination (LCD) will be revised to include CPT codes 0078T-0081T with an effective date of 06/01/2013.
