Billing Codes and Data Standards: What AAAs, CBOs and Community Care Hubs (CCHs) Need to Know to Navigate the Social Care Payment Landscape 

Hosted by the Aging and Disability Business Institute

The 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule adds new codes related to social care interventions that expand Medicare payment opportunities for AAAs, CBOs and CCH-led networks.

Come to this preconference intensive to dive deep on these critical issues and prepare your organization to take advantage of new opportunities to improve care for the populations you serve.
