Membership Benefits

Enjoy the Benefits of ACRO Membership

The American College of Radiation Oncology is the essential, professional society for success in the day-to-day practice of radiation oncology. Since 1990, ACRO has focused its attention on both the clinical and economic aspects of practicing radiation oncology. As a professional medical society representing a relatively small subspecialty, ACRO has led the effort to ensure appropriate reimbursement for clinical care and has provided services to help its members become better clinicians.

Its mission is to strive to ensure the highest quality care for radiation therapy patients and promote success in the practice of radiation oncology through education, responsible socioeconomic advocacy, and integration of science and technology into clinical practice.

So what value does ACRO membership provide?

How do I make sure my interests are represented in Congress?
ACRO keeps an eye on Washington and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services with experienced, effective, and intelligent legislative counsel while you take care of your patients.

How do I make sure I get fully reimbursed for my practice’s treatment of patients?
ACRO’s practical and dynamic Radiation Oncology Coding and Reimbursement Guide. Designed by experts and published online by ACRO, the guide is updated annually to help you practice more successfully.

How do I gain recognition from my peers for my contributions to radiation oncology?
After years of dedication and service to the College, members can become Fellows of ACRO with the right to use the designation FACRO after the MD degree. This is a highly distinguished position showing that you are a highly valued member of the field of radiation oncology.

How do I maintain my certification with the ABR and continue my training as a radiation oncologist?
ACRO has two meetings annually designed to help you network, mentor, and learn. The ACRO annual meeting, held in the spring, provides radiation oncologists with access to up-to-date information on the profession, access to business partners, and a chance to network with colleagues.

The billing and coding guide is helpful, but what if I want more of an explanation of the rules and proposed rules as they are discussed?
ACRO has comprehensive billing and coding support through training webinars, supported by Revenue Cycle, Inc. ACRO provides you with the resources to make sure your practice is fully compensated by third-party payers.

I want to get more involved in the community, but I’m not sure how?
ACRO has a number of committees that participate in the growth of the profession, and as a member you can participate in them!
