Advocacy

Initial Projects adopted by the Steering Committee

1. Review the current guidelines utilized for Pre-Authorization by some of the New England payor groups. These will be then submitted for NECCA review and commentary.

2. Submit practice surveys to the NECCA membership to determine “usual practice”. Please contact Richard Mcfaul or Adrian Moran if you have questions or would like to be involved with our Advocacy Steering Committee.

3. The development of an Advocacy Coalition will be spearheaded by Dr. Gerald Marx in an effort to link NECCA members with the various American Heart Association representatives from New England states. If you are interested in learning more about this please contact either Naomi Gauthier, MD or Jerry Marx, MD.
