New RNFA Resource: Model Reimbursement Bill
Publish Date: 5/23/2012
AORN’s RNFA Specialty Assembly and the National Legislative Committee have prepared template language for state RNFA reimbursement bills. Currently, only 16 states require third party reimbursement for surgical assistant services performed by a registered nurse first assistant.
AORN supports initiatives directed at achieving reimbursement for first assistant services provided by RNFAs. If you are interested in pursuing reimbursement for first assistant services provided by RNFAs in your state please contact AORN’s director of government affairs Amy Hader or your state legislative coordinator. Additional advocacy resources for RNFAs are available from AORN here.
