CMS Plans MSSP Provider Call July 31
Providers curious about the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and the Advance Payment Model (APM) are invited to join a national provider call on July 31, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. EDT. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) says experts will provide an overview and updates to the MSSP and APM application processes for the Jan. 1, 2013 MSSP start date.
Interested providers can register for the free call before noon the day of the call.
CMS issued a final rule Oct. 20, 2011, under the Affordable Care Act, to establish the MSSP, along with a notice for the APM that will provide additional support to physician-led and rural Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) participating in the Shared Savings Program. These two initiatives will help providers participate in ACOs to improve quality of care for Medicare patients, CMS said.
AAPC continuing education units (CEUs) are available for this call.
