Strategies to Avoid Medicare Payment Cuts in 2018. Last Chance to Make Amends!


Healthcare providers, physicians included, are subject to reduction in Medicare payment up to 9%, if they fail to report data to Quality Programs of Medicare by February 2017. Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Meaningful Use and Value-Based Modifier (VBM) Programs are right on place for the reporting year 2016, and you still have time in your hand to meet requirements – although there is no denying that the window is rapidly closing.

This session by expert speaker Jeanne J. Chamberlin is going to help you comply with the last chance of avoiding Medicare payment cuts in 2018. Jeanne will do a comprehensive review of the 2016 requirements, deadlines and penalties for each Medicare Quality Program – Meaningful Use, PQRS and Value Based Modifiers. Also, you will be provided with tips that procrastinators can use with reporting approaches that are still available to you, even if you haven’t been collecting quality data all year.
