In November 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized its Physician Fee Schedule rule for 2017, which includes several significant coding and payment changes of importance to geriatrics and geriatrics healthcare professionals.

This webinar will discuss these updates, including payment for complex chronic care management, assessment and care planning for cognitive impairment, prolonged service codes, as well as existing codes of interest where requirements for billing may have been modified. The presenters will discuss the qualifying patients, qualifying services, and the basics for billing these services to Medicare and other payers. Following the program, the attendee should be able to introduce these new codes into their practices.

The webinar is presented by AGS Board Member and geriatrician Peter Hollmann, MD, and AGS consultant Denise Merlino, CPC, MBA, CNMT – both recognized for their expertise in payment and coding.

Participants can earn a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). The webinar is available for CME credit from 12/14/16 to 12/13/17.
