Foley Senior Counsel Alexis Finkelberg Bortniker will present the webinar titled “Advanced Alternate Payment Models: Implications for Telemedicine” for REACHHealth on September 14, 2016.

The recent emergence of advanced alternative payment models (APMs) such as Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) has created a great deal of uncertainty regarding the future of reimbursement. Reimbursement is evolving rapidly, especially with Medicare's goal of having 50% of Medicare payments paid through APMs by 2018. One prevalent expectation is a significant decline in fee for service payments and a shift to value-based care.

These new APMs create a powerful incentive for providers to develop new care models - and new opportunities to leverage telemedicine. For example, part of the MIPS performance score includes expanded access to medical practices and specialists, both proven use cases for telemedicine.

Join us for this timely discussion on the latest developments in APMs, including:

  • Overview of emerging APMs, including affected providers, timeline, and schedules of payments/penalties 
  • The importance of using less resource-intensive care 
  • Incentives for more thorough and effective sharing of patient data 
  • Potential opportunities to enhance APM-based reimbursement using telemedicine

The session will allow ample time for audience questions at the end of the presentation.

Who Should Attend:

  • Hospital and health system strategy officers, executives, and counsel 
  • Telemedicine program directors, managers, and coordinators 
  • Hospital and health system financial personnel
