Product Description

Learn How to Avoid Payment Cuts and Position Yourself for Higher Medicare Payments!


Medicare has transitioned to a pay-for-performance model. Reimbursements now are partly based on the cost and quality of care that you provide to your patients. If you show low-cost and high-quality of care in 2016, you could be rewarded with higher Medicare payments rates in 2018. However, the reverse is also true – low quality of care and high costs may invite penalties up to 10% in 2018. That’s bad news for your practice’s health. The good news is that you can prevent that from happening.

Attend this session by our expert speaker Jeanne J. Chamberlin and gain a detailed understanding of the requirements and reporting options for successfully reporting quality measures to CMS.

Session Highlights:

  • Understand how your practice’s costs and quality will be evaluated under the VBM Program
  • Tips for actions you need to take now to avoid Medicare payment cuts in 2018 and beyond
