AAST Is Here to Help
It’s hard to believe 2021 is already half over. We’re well past the one-year mark of the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and while cases are down in the U.S. and more and more people are getting vaccinated, we will continue to deal with the ramifications of the virus for years to come.
This issue of A2Zzz is largely focused on those ramifications — how they affect sleep-care professionals and our field. During this time, AAST continues to make it a priority to provide members and the sleep community with what they need to adapt and continue to provide superior care to patients and staff.
In my last message, I outlined a few of the new initiatives AAST has launched this year, including a webinar series from the AAST Education Advisory Committee and new eBooks. I also wanted to remind you that AAST offers a number of complimentary digital publications, including “The Changing Face of Sleep Technology: Past, Present, and Future” and “Sleep and Athletics,” among others.
Hear from AAST Board Member Brendan Duffy about why AAST’s eBooks are so important by clicking on the video below.
You can always visit the AAST Learning Center for more information on all of AAST’s educational initiatives.
Lastly, I wanted to touch on the importance of Medicare Administrative Contractors (MAC) compliance. It’s extremely important to understand and follow the policy of your MAC but doing so can be very confusing.
