Regulatory Affairs and the Revenue Cycle: What to watch for in the ASC industry
Thursday, October 19, 2017 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm CT
As we watch the healthcare industry evolve from fee-for-service to value-based payment systems, it is critical to understand the trends in quality and cost containment that are resulting in the migration of procedures from the high-cost hospital setting to the high-quality, but lower-cost ASC setting. Payer contracts and health plan mergers are creating additional hurdles in the provider reimbursement arena. With the 2018 Medicare Outpatient Prospective Payment System final rule due out this fall, we will explore the proposal and how changes will impact the revenue cycle and healthcare reform in the ASC industry.
During this webinar, attendees will:
- Develop an understanding of the potential changes in federal regulation that will have an impact on revenue cycle
- Understand reimbursement challenges as complicated, device intensive procedures migrate to the ASC setting
- Learn about the growing focus of quality in the ASC setting and the opportunities for influencing future legislation
