Description:

Ever wondered how a molecular test gets paid for but were too afraid to ask? The AMP Economic Affairs Committee invites you to a webinar where Dr. Caughron will provide an overview of coding, coverage and reimbursement determination processes, with an emphasis on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) methods used by the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs).  The entire process is dependent on input from the broad laboratory community to ensure that tests are covered and reimbursed appropriately by Medicare.  This webinar will provide AMP members with a better understanding of the different parts of the process and will educate members on how to become engaged in the AMP’s efforts on their behalf.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide a brief overview of the molecular pathology and genomic sequencing procedure coding structure
  • Explain the CMS processes for coverage and reimbursement including gapfill, crosswalk, and local coverage determinations

  • Identify ways you can assist the EAC to ensure patient access to appropriate test procedures

Level of Instruction: Basic
