for Medicare seminar

Registrations for the Wisconsin Medical Society’s annual fall Medicare seminar Mastering Medicare in 2014 now are being accepted. The day-long seminar will be held in Madison (October 29), Brookfield (October 30) and Green Bay (October 31).*

Jen Cohrs, the Society’s director of educational strategies, and Sandy Stehli of SVA Healthcare Services will open the day-long seminar with an update on the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and other hot topics. The Meaningful Use EHR incentive programs, transitional care management and other chronic care coordination services, the Physician Quality Reporting System and the value-based modifier also will be discussed.

During lunch, Chris Rasch the Society’s director of state and federal relations will discuss the Affordable Care Act’s new Health Insurance Marketplace (also known as insurance exchanges). He will share information about how the Marketplace affects physicians and will offer guidance for managing the changes.

Christine Obergfell of National Government Services (NGS)–the new Medicare Administrative Contractor for Jurisdiction 6–will lead the afternoon session. Topics will include comprehensive error rate testing, the NGS Medicare website, Quality Resource Utilization Reports, public reporting and much more. A question-and-answer session also is scheduled.

The cost is $209 for the first registrant from a clinic and $99 for each additional person from the same clinic. To receive this special pricing, registrants must call the Society’s Continuing Education Center at 877.880.1335 and mention the multiple-attendee pricing for the Society’s Medicare seminar.
