Benefits of Joining

 

 

Dear Colleague:

 

Despite decreasing reimbursement for many procedures, overhead continues to increase. We seem to pay more to get less and work harder to earn fewer dollars to pay for services and commodities. Furthermore it often seems difficult to find an organization to adequately voice concerns and represent our needs. It is therefore crucial to avail ourselves of cost effective means of maximizing our return while minimizing the money expended to support our practices. The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons understands these issues and has incorporated them into its operating mission. The benefits of joining the 2,800+ active members of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons include:
