All ASIPP members will receive access to a mobile app that offers on-demand webcasts and articles. Not only will the program continue to uphold the original mission of ASIPP, but also further enhance the educational opportunities and mobility towards professional growth. "In the modern era of regulatory tsunami and exploding practice costs with declining reimbursement, the creation of an exclusive medical liability program for members of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) is one of the pivotal achievements of the organization," said Laxmaiah Manchikanti, MD, ASIPP chairman of the board and chief executive officer. "There are many important benefits of this program in addition to a savings on average of 15- to 40-percent, exclusively for ASIPP members, with an additional discount for ABIPP board certification (*ABIPP Certification discount pending approval). As many practices are now forced to undergo three and four audits a year, another benefit is the administrative defense coverage for audits. Coverage limits can be extended up to $1 million. "We are confident this program will propel the importance of ASIPP and the importance of ASIPP guidelines We're proud to offer this new program on the heels of another successful ASIPP program, the National Interventional Pain Management Qualified Clinical Data Registry (NIPM-QCDR) which saves physicians 9 percent in penalties, and provides outcomes for interventional techniques we perform daily."
