In this TIM Talks webinar, consultant Tim McNeill explains the new rule that The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) passed in November 2016 that revises the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule payment system. This rule has a number of provisions that are applicable to community-based organizations (CBOs) interested in becoming Medicare-certified providers for their services. CBO-relevant rules provide clarity on the Diabetes Self-Management Training (DSMT) and the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), the Chronic Care Management (CCM) and Transitional Care Management (TCM) billing codes, and Expanded Bundled Payment models. The key takeaway is that CBOs have an opportunity to tap into Medicare reimbursement streams, as health care providers can contract directly with CBOs to support delivery of prevention and care coordination services that affect the above programs and codes.
