As always, CMS is looking for ways to “simplify” and to reduce their costs – who isn’t? This time, it is a proposed, mandatory “pilot” program to bundle radiation payments. The proposed Alternative Payment Model (APM) will, if (or when) enacted, bundle all services delivered into a single payment for technical services and another single payment for professional services. There are proposed rates for each of 17 different disease groups. What would the results look like for your center? Might it be a disaster or a boon? This webinar will demonstrate the projected results based on actual treatment course records, as well as addressing the “hidden” costs of participating in the mandatory program.
For this webinar we are thrilled to be joined by our good friend and professional colleague, Ms. Sally Luehring, MSL, RHIA. Ms. Luehring is the Executive Director, Cancer Services & Clinical Research for the Hospital Sisters Health System (Division – Eastern Wisconsin) based in Illinois.

We thank them immensely for sharing this data with us and helping us bring you this tremendously valuable and timely analysis.
