The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) is a professional medical organization whose mission is devoted to the enhancement of the practice of clinical endocrinology. AACE works with Congress, federal agencies and with other health care professionals to advocate the necessary changes to benefit patients and endocrinologists, and to keep abreast of important aspects of scientific, economic, social and political factors impacting the practice of clinical endocrinology. For more information on Legislative and Regulatory Issues, please see the Advocacy drop down menu or you may contact Sara Milo, Director of Legislation and Governmental Affairs, by e-mail.
In the constant changing world of Socioeconomics, Member Advocacy, and physician practice management, it is now, more than ever, necessary for AACE to continue to strive better to assist their members in areas related to Socioeconomics and Member Advocacy including health policy and regulation, Medicare, coding, and third party reimbursement. For this reason, it is important that the AACE Socioeconomics and Member Advocacy Department maintain a high level of skill and working knowledge related to these matters.
The overall goal of the department is to strive to increase the effectiveness and efficiency in its ability to provide assistance to the association membership on issues specific to endocrinology, Socioeconomics and Member Advocacy. For more information on Socioeconomic issues, please see the menus or you may contact Anita Sumpter, Director of Socioeconomic Affairs and Member Advocacy by e-mail.
The toolkit is a comprehensive resource of regulatory and socioeconomic topics to assist in the day-to-day activities of your practice. AACE members are able to access valuable information about the current ICD codes, the Physician Payment Sunshine Act, corporate and HIPAA compliance, participation in Medicare quality reporting programs, and other useful topics.
