Free Coding Webinar
« on: October 18, 2010, 12:59:20 PM »
Welcome to the Practice Management Alerts
from the American Medical Association (AMA)
Free webinar Oct. 27 helps you reassess your practice's Medicare participation

With Medicare physician payments scheduled to be cut 30 percent by Jan. 1, this year's Medicare participation decision period arrives at a time of tremendous uncertainty for physicians and patients.

Learn about the options you have--participation in Medicare, nonparticipation in Medicare, or opting out of Medicare and privately contracting with patients--during "Understanding your Medicare choices: Preparing for the 2011 Medicare participation decision," a free AMA webinar scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. Eastern time Oct. 27. This webinar will describe the advantages and disadvantages of the three options and walk participants through an example of how payments are calculated under each one.

Participants also will be introduced to a series of resources that help physicians gauge which Medicare option is right for their practice. Resources include a worksheet that calculates the revenue impact of changing from "participating" to "nonparticipating" status and sample communications that physicians can use when explaining their Medicare participation to patients. The webinar also will cover government-proposed 2011 Medicare physician payment policy changes.

Sign up for the webinar today.
