The Relative Value Update Committee (RUC) is comprised of about 30 doctors who determine prices for medical procedures. Since Medicare accepts about 90% of the RUC's recommendations, private insurers are forced to follow. The RUC, therefore, has the influence and ability to price most medical procedures throughout the country.
