Please join AAA Medicare Consultant Brian S. Werfel, AAA Consultant Kathy Lester, AAA Medicare Regulatory Committee Chair Rebecca Williamson, and AAA Payment Reform Committee Chair Asbel Montes, for a discussion of the latest updates related to the Emergency Triage, Treat, and Transport Model (ET3). ET3 is a voluntary 5-year pilot program, under which CMS will test two new payment models for EMS agencies that respond to 911 calls:(1) a payment model that will permit Medicare reimbursement for transportation to treatment destinations other than a hospital and (2) a payment model where Medicare will reimburse for treatment at the scene (rendered in conjunction with a qualified health care practitioner) without a transport. CMS recently released a preview of the Request for Application (RFA), which will be used by EMS agencies to apply for participation in the ET3 model. This document provided a good deal of new information on the contemplated operation of the ET3 model

Topics that will be discussed on the webinar include: the new eligibility criteria for participation, the application process for participation, the revised rates to be paid under the model, performance requirements, and much more. The session will conclude with a Q&A period.
