Description: On November 1, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized proposed changes to the Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program for 2019. The final rule includes sections that will be effective on January 1, 2019, and directly address the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) and the Clinical Lab Fee Schedule (CLFS). CMS revises the definition of “Applicable Laboratories,” by utilizing the CMS-1450 14x Type of Bill which is specific to hospital outreach laboratories. The use of this bill type will result in an increase in AMP member laboratories required to report private payer data to CMS. During this webinar, an overview of PAMA and the final rule changes will be provided. The webinar will also provide guidance on how to determine whether or not your laboratory qualifies as an applicable laboratory, timelines for collecting and reporting data, and resources available to assist laboratories through this process. During and after the webinar we encourage attendees to submit their questions. These questions and answers will be compiled into a document and will be available as a supplement to the archived version of this webinar.

Background: CMS released the final rule implementing the CLFS rate setting provision of Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) in June of 2016. Laboratories defined as “applicable laboratories” are required to report HCPCS laboratory codes, associated private payer rates, and volume data if they meet certain revenue thresholds from laboratory and physician services during a collection period. CMS takes the weighted median of the data submitted to determine the price for services on the Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule (CLFS).

A Webinar Presented by the AMP Economic Affairs Committee

This product will give you access to the webinar only. If you would like continuing education credit for the webinar, see the table below to purchase the webinar + CME/CMLE or webinar + SAM.


Description:

Knowledge of the coding structure of molecular medicine is crucial as these codes are incorporated and used by insurers to identify the services you provide to patients and understanding the basics of CPT® coding will benefit your laboratory practice and management. The American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) coding system is used throughout the United States as a main system of coding for health care services, including laboratory and pathology procedures. The AMP Economic Affairs Committee (EAC) is intimately involved in this process, both by submitting code change applications regularly but also by occupying a rotating seat on the Pathology Coding Caucus, which reviews and provides recommendations to the AMA CPT® Editorial Panel on applications for new or revised pathology and laboratory services. During this webinar, AMP members will be provided with a better understanding of the intricacies of the CPT® coding structure and process for laboratory and pathology codes. This webinar will also educate members by providing resources and tips for submitting your own code change application.
