Find Out How Medicare's Proposed Payment Rule Could Affect Your ASC

July 28, 2014

Learn about Medicare's proposed changes to ASC reimbursement rates for 2015, additions to the ASC-eligible list and changes to Medicare's quality reporting measures—and what you can still do to help shape the final rule—during ASCA's next webinar. "Understanding Medicare's Proposed Rates for 2015" on Tuesday, August 5, at 1:00 pm ET.

Kara Newbury, assistant director of government affairs for ASCA, will discuss:

  • Proposed changes to the ASC fee schedule and a review of ASCA resources that will be available to help prepare for these changes

  • Medicare's plans to add 10 new spine procedures to the ASC-eligible list

  • CMS' proposed change to the definition of ASC device-intensive procedures

  • Changes to the quality reporting program, including one newly proposed measure and a proposal to change an existing quality measure from mandatory to voluntary

Nursing contact hours and AEU credits are available, and multiple members of your staff can participate using the same online connection. Participate in the live broadcast to ask your questions real-time during the presentation.
