ACG has partnered with the State Medical Society of New Jersey in opposing a recent Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield site of service policy change for many GI procedures. This policy change became effective December 1, 2016 and would lower professional fees for many GI services. Yet, according to some ACG members and the State Medical Society of New Jersey, this change seems to have been implemented without the requisite due process and notification requirements under state law. ACG is requesting that Horizon reconsider this policy change. ACG is working on behalf of its NJ members and will provide updates as we move forward.

The ACG Board of Governors is one of the most unique aspects of the American College of Gastroenterology. Governors are ACG Fellows that are elected from the membership of a particular state or region. There are currently 76 Governors across seven different regions in the U.S. and abroad. The Board of Governors acts as a two-way conduit between College leadership and the membership at-large. This helps the College make certain it is meeting the evolving needs of the membership. Contact your ACG Governor today.
