Medicare’s Ground Ambulance Data Collection System: Overview and Answers to Common Questions
November 23, 20201 | 14:00 ET | Speaker: Andrew Mulcahy
More than 5,000 ground ambulance organizations will start collecting information under Medicare’s Ground Ambulance Data Collection System (GADCS) in 2022. While many ambulance organizations already collect and track much of the information required under GADCS, some organizations may need to adjust their processes and systems now – in 2021 – to prepare for data collection in 2022. Collecting and reporting accurate information to GADCS is important. In the future, MedPAC will use GADCS data to assess the adequacy of Medicare ambulance payment rates.
Andrew Mulcahy is a Senior Health Policy Researcher at RAND, a non-profit research organization helping CMS develop and implement the GADCS. Andrew will present an overview of the system and its requirements. He’ll walk through common GADCS questions and answers and field live questions from the audience.
