Join A.A.A. Medicare Consultant Brian S. Werfel, Esq. for an update on recent changes to Medicare’s coverage of ambulance services. This webinar coincides with the American Ambulance Association’s release of its 2020 Medicare Reference Manual. Brian will discuss recent changes in Medicare policy, including changes to the rules governing the enforcement of fraud and abuse, the appeals process, etc. We will also discuss Medicare’s proposed plan for the ET3 Program, the national expansion of the prior authorization model for scheduled non-emergency transports, and much more.
Of course, we will also discuss Medicare’s coverage of ambulance services during the current COVID-19 process. This will include a frank discussion of the issues related to medical necessity for the transportation of known or suspected COVID-19 patients, the coverage of transports to field hospitals and other alternative destinations, the current status of certain administrative rules like the Medicare patient signature requirement and the Notice of Privacy Practices, etc.
The session will include an extended Q&A period to address any and all questions from attendees.
