Product Description

Keeping yourself ahead with the changes in Medicare for 2016

 

 The Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) draft and Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) give us insight into changes for 2016 for Medicare. But there are other areas to consider also:

  • The Sustainable Growth Rate has been repealed - what changes will this cause?
  • Information on Modifier 59 and the subset modifiers,
  • Changes to Incident To supervision rules, and
  • New payments for Advance Care Planning

There are all areas that can negatively affect your bottom line. Expert speaker Jill M Young will also be discussing changes to the Physician Compare Website that will allow for individual and group-level PQRS measures information to be made public. Additionally, a benchmark will be established that will allow consumers to compare groups and individuals in a five star rating system.
