Our Commitment to Your Success
The Academy's physician leaders are working with policymakers in Washington, D.C., to secure ophthalmologists' success under the new system. In addition to our analysis following CMS' publication of the 2018 final rule in November 2017, we continue to identify and address parts of the program that don't work for ophthalmologists. We're working with medicine, Congress and federal regulators to ensure the system supports you and your patients.
