Excerpt: The medical billing process has evolved from a relatively simple back-office administrative duty to a sophisticated matrix. It has morphed into a system and workflow that requires subject matter experts in CPT coding, ICD-10 coding, technology, claim filing, edits, managing denied claims, holding payors accountable, payor contracting, responsiveness to patients, compliance, and providing meaningful reports to radiologists, practice managers, accountants, and attorneys.

HealthPro Assists Organizations with Response to CMS Proposed Rule on MACRA Implementation
A little over a year ago, Congress passed the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). In April, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released its proposed rule containing 962 pages of proposed regulations that directly impact physicians’ ability to serve Medicare patients.
Many of the provisions are extensive and onerous and as such, HealthPro has provided extensive support to its industry affiliations to address the provisions harmful to the physician community and their patients from an administrative perspective.
The entire proposed rule can be accessed at https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2016-10032.pdf
June 27, 2016, is the deadline for comment period and we anticipate that final regulations will be forthcoming in early November, 2016, with implementation dates beginning January 1, 2017, giving physicians and the entities that support them little time to adjust to the changes in reporting requirements.
HealthPro’s Don Rodden and other HBMA Leaders meet with CMS Leadership in Baltimore, MD and Congressional Staff in Washington, D.C.
HBMA’s Government Relations leadership will meet at CMS headquarters to discuss a variety of operational and policy issues, followed by meetings on Capitol Hill to discuss legislative issues pertinent to healthcare providers and their revenue cycle management. Read more >>
