Reimbursement & Regulatory Update: Outpatient PPS & PFS Proposed Rules - 3-Part Series

September 10-12, 2019 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST

Learn about the Medicare Annual Outpatient Prospective Payment System and Physician Fee Schedule Rules and other reimbursement developments that will take effect on January 1, 2020.

Medicare program reimbursement and payment regulations are continuously evolving, and so must you. The CMS annually proposes and then finalizes new payment rules for the Medicare Outpatient Prospective Payment System and the Physician Fee Schedules. Join John Waltko, Vice President of Financial and Regulatory Reporting, as he explains and discusses the implications of these proposed changes that affect hospital and physician payments from the Medicare program.

This 3-part webinar series will cover the Medicare program’s annual Proposed Outpatient Prospective Payment System update and the Proposed Medicare Physician Fee Schedule rules. Other select reimbursement and payment changes resulting from CMS policy directives will be highlighted, including federal legislation, landmark court decisions and changes in policy by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that affect Medicare program outpatient reimbursements, and the CMS proposed shared space definition and how it affects provider based clinics and departments of hospitals.
