EDPMA Committee Day (Open to all Attendees)

SUNDAY, MAY 1, 2015, 9AM - 4:15PM

Once again, EDPMA is opening up its committee workshops to all Summit registrants, both members and nonmembers. Sunday’s workshops are a great way to learn what EDPMA is working on and why you should join the association. Attendees will hear from committee members and outside speakers on important issues facing the business of emergency medicine.

The Federal Health Policy Committee will discuss federal issues such as preparing for the new Medicare reimbursement formula, developing an alternative payment model for emergency medicine, and the greatest-of-three policy (which sets a floor for out-of-network reimbursement for emergency care).

The State Regulatory & Insurance Committee will discuss state-level activity regarding Medicaid, Managed Care, limits on balance billing, and more.

The Quality, Coding & Documentation Committee will address issues like ICD-10 implementation, quality reporting, and more.

The Provider Enrollment Committee will discuss best practices when working with Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and other issues surrounding provider enrollment and revalidation.

Many attendees find these informal workshops to be a great way to learn from experts and peers on the issues of the day, to get to know leaders in the industry, and more. The workshops are an integral part of the Summit.  Don’t miss out!
