In the spring of 2015, Congress passed a major revision in how medical practices will be paid for treating Medicare patients. Instead of paying a set fee for each service provided, Medicare intends to pay each provider a different fee based on their value and performance. Providers will choose one of two pathways:
CMS released proposed rules for this new approach in late April with final rules expected in November. Services provided during Calendar Year 2017 will form the basis for payments in 2019 and the actions you take starting in January will result in reduction of up to 4% in your Medicare revenue or increase of up to 22%. 2017 is right around the corner – and now is the time to start preparing.
Join this session by expert speaker Jeanne J. Chamberlin to understand how this new legislation will impact your payments for services to Medicare patients. You will learn the pros and cons of selecting between two paths, and help you make a plan to ensure your practice is ready for the transition.
