Along with the new year comes a host of need-to-know information buried in Medicare's 2013 physician fee schedule.
Let two AAFP coding and payment experts guide you through the maze of details related to this year's fee schedule and numerous associated federal programs during a free hourlong webinar offered on Jan. 23 at 1 p.m. CST by TransforMED's Delta-Exchange network.
Kent Moore, AAFP senior strategist for physician payment, and Debra Seyfried, M.B.A., C.P.C., AAFP coding and compliance strategist, will help family physicians keep their businesses profitable by explaining new rules and provisions related to
- transitional care management;
- Medicaid/Medicare payment parity;
- annual wellness visits; and
- bonus/penalty systems built into federal programs, such as the Physician Quality Reporting System and electronic prescribing.
In addition, the two experts will team up to discuss the expansion of Medicare coverage of hepatitis B vaccine, new rules pertaining to durable medical equipment and payment for new preventive services "G" codes.
There will be plenty of time to pose questions, and the entire webinar will be archived in Delta-Exchange's online seminar zone for physicians unable to participate live.
