Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued the final rules that update payment policies and payment rates for services furnished under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS), the Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS), and Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) Payment System.
This webinar provides you with an overview of Medicare’s final rules and changes for hospitals and rural health providers. It also includes highlights of the final 2016 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) rule which updates Medicare payment policies and rates for inpatient stays at general acute care and long-term care hospitals for FY 2016.

  • Medicare billing changes for Rural Health Clinics
  • Changes to global services and access to telehealth services
  • Items and services to be “packaged” or included in payment for a primary service
  • Off campus provider-based departments
  • Payment-related changes and coding updates including comprehensive ambulatory payment classifications (C-APCs)
