You are invited to join a new society (SIPMS)

Because ASIPP works on a diverse list of other issues with limited funding available exclusively for surgery center issues, we are inviting you to become a charter member of a new organization – the Society of Interventional Pain Management Surgery Centers (SIPMS) – to focus all efforts on issues involved in providing Interventional Pain Management procedures in the ASC setting.
 
Why should my center join another society?
While ASIPP will continue to work closely with the new surgery center society, SIPMS will focus all of its resources on the challenges unique to the ASC setting, including the growing list of legislative and administrative attempts to increase regulation of surgery centers. SIPMS was organized because there is no other national organization devoted exclusively to the issues of providing Interventional Pain Management procedures in the ASC setting. More importantly, a separate organization generates a new level of involvement and a specificity that creates an image of increased experience and credibility. 
 
Membership benefits
SIPMS’s first priority will be advocacy to limit or eliminate impending dramatic cuts in Medicare payment for ASC services. If a procedure is not approved by Medicare, other insurers will refuse to pay.
 
The hospital industry is working against physician ownership in ASCs. If physicians are owners or part owners of a surgery center, this will cause a significant negative impact on the future practice of interventional pain management and patient access to these vital services.
