Society offers advance care planning coding webinar Nov. 11

In response to the 2016 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule that recommends separate payment and a payment rate for advance care planning services, the Wisconsin Medical Society is offering Advance Care Planning: Coding the Conversation. The webinar, being held Nov. 11 from noon to 1 p.m., aims to prepare physicians and other health care professionals for the documentation considerations necessary for reimbursement.

Jen Cohrs, the Society’s director of educational strategies, will identify key coding and documentation needs, workflow considerations and coverage and benefits of advance care planning service. This educational activity, which has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and continuing education credit by the AAPC, is intended for physicians and other health care professionals currently providing or considering providing advance care planning services to ensure appropriate reporting.

For more information or to register for the webinar, visit the Society’s Continuing Education Center.
