Tuesday, July 31, 2018 CMS to Host Fee Schedule Webinar for APTA Members If the 2019 physician fee schedule is adopted as proposed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), physical therapists (PTs) will need to get up to speed quickly. Now CMS is offering APTA members a head start. On August 7 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm ET, CMS will host a live webinar on the Quality Payment Program (QPP), the value-based payment model that will require PT participation beginning in 2019 under the proposed fee schedule. Presenters will focus on the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (AAPMs), and offer a brief question-and-answer session. The webinar is free, but space is limited. Interested APTA members are encouraged to complete the online registration (APTA login required) as early as possible. For members unable to join the live presentation, a recording will be posted on the APTA MIPS webpage at a later date. What's the proposed 2019 fee schedule all about? This 3-part series from PT in Motion News takes a look at MIPS, AAPMs, and more (part 1, part 2, part 3).
