American A Committee

The AAP Committee on Coding and Nomenclature (COCN) is in charge of analyzing all proposed changes to CPT and ICD-10-CM coding systems to see if the Academy will support them; it also participates in the American Medical Association/Specialty Society Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC) survey process by validating clinical vignettes, evaluating survey data, and making decisions. The COCN also keeps an eye on the Medicare RBRVS physician fee schedule and how private and public payers are adopting it.
