ASOA Webinar: Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program Proposed Rule: What’s Proposed for MIPS and Physician Payment in 2019?

ASCRS•ASOA will host a webinar on Wednesday, August 29, from 2:00–3:00 p.m. ET on the 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule, which includes the Quality Payment Program (QPP). ASCRS Director of Government Relations Nancey McCann and Manager of Regulatory Affairs Allison Madson will provide an overview of the proposed rule and how it impacts ophthalmology. Among the key proposals in the rule are MIPS for 2019, including a major overhaul of the Promoting Interoperability category, and the inclusion of a new cataract surgery episode-based cost measure. In addition, they will review CMS’ proposal to change documentation and payment of E/M codes. The webinar will include a preview of ASCRS’ comments to CMS on the proposed rule.
