Sponsored by: Chronic Care Management Reimbursement Compliance: Overcoming Obstacles and Meeting Requirements

With the rollout of the new Chronic Care Management (CCM) code, physician practices now receive reimbursement for care coordination that many were already doing without reimbursement. Complying with the Medicare requirements is not without challenges and hurdles. During this 45-minute webinar on February 12, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, Dr. Paul Rudolf, partner, Arnold & Porter LLP, and Nicole Liffrig, counsel, Arnold & Porter LLP, will delve into CMS requirements and discuss approaches and challenges to meeting the CCM requirements.
