How to weather the rocky healthcare reimbursement environment

Improving reimbursement is central to the success of any ASC, especially in a changing healthcare environment dictated by shifting CMS policies.

For example, the much anticipated addition of total knee replacement procedures to the ASC payable list was delayed by CMS in Nov. 2017, while further comments are collected. This decision sent ripples through the industry with the effects still being felt today. Some lauded the move, while others believe it'll have an impact on an ASC's ability to negotiate fair contacts with private payers.

Cardinal Health's Director of Payer & Reimbursement Strategy Marilyn Denegre-Rumbin will share strategies and her expertise on how centers should navigate the healthcare environment in 2018 to ensure they're set-up for success in an upcoming webinar.

Specifically, Ms. Denegre-Rumbin will discuss reimbursement trends for ASCs in 2018, opportunities ASCs can take advantage of today as policies are finalized, how the outpatient prospective payment system final rule will affect ASCs, CMS' Meaningful Measures and changes in alternative payment models, among others.

The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 22 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. CST. To register, click here.
