New Medicare Coverage and Payment for Primary Care Services – Learn about the Primary Care Services and Revenue Opportunities for Academy Practices Effective January 2017

Originally presented on Monday, December 12, 2016

Webinar Overview:
CMS finalized coverage and payment for new primary care services effective 2017. CMS has also revised the requirements for chronic care management services. These new services are the result of advocacy of the Academy and other medical associations.  You may already be rendering service that already meets the service requirements. Now you will be paid for these professional services and those of your staff.  The payment for these services should add significant revenue to your practice over the course of the year, support care team staffing, and practice transformation.

Attend the webinar to learn:

  • The new services that are covered by Medicare effective January 2017.
  • The required service elements of each new service and how they need to be documented.
  • When can the services be billed in the same billing period and which codes are mutually exclusive?
  • What are the payment amounts for the new services and practice considerations in using the codes?
  • How the services will pay for members of the housecall care team, support care and practice transformation.
  • What are the administrative changes for chronic care management and related codes for 2017?
  • What are the housecall related services identified in the OIG Workplan for 2017 and how do I assure I am documenting the services correctly?
