Working Smarter: Concise Compliance Conversations

  1. In recent years, we have heard more attention being focused on the social factors that complicate health and medical care. One of these factors is access to transportation, which has long been an issue in Medicare coverage. In this episode, We are joined by Andrea Osborne, VMD Senior VP of Delegated Services to discuss the complicated rules for non-emergency ambulance transportation. Andrea shares with us some recent changes that may have an impact on patients and some guidance for the primary care workforce on how to address these issues.

  2. The cost of prescription drugs can take a significant toll on patients and impact their drug adherence and overall health. Primary care providers, historically, have been unable to do much to help patients manage this problem, but recent regulatory changes are adding price transparency which may help. Experts Michael Adelberg and VillageMD’s very own Adam Chesler discuss the details of new transparency initiatives for both Medicare Advantage and commercial drugs and predict the potential impact for patients and providers.

  3. “That’s not my job”. This was a common refrain in healthcare when there was a clear separation between staff who treated patients and others who were responsible for billing. But as healthcare evolves further into value based care, the gap between billing rules and clinical care requirements is converging. In this first episode of 2022, we invite Megan Harkins to talk about the slow creeping convergence of billing and clinical rules and the impact this has on the various skills needed by the healthcare workforce. Buckle up folks, this episode dives into the bumpy road of change as the healthcare industry makes the shift from volume to value-based care.

  4. We have surveyed topics you wanted to hear more about, and overwhelmingly our listeners said "telemedicine." In the first half of this week's episode, we are joined by Megan Harkins, one of our VillageMD experts to discuss telemedicine requirements and how they have changed as a result of COVID-19. During the second half, we sat down with those working on the front lines of telemedicine, Dr. Karen Wetherell, one of our VillageMD physicians and Stacy Gabrysz, a VillageMD Regional Practice Administrator. They share their thoughts, success, and struggles with telemedicine.

  5. Surprise! In this episode, we are sharing the key features of the new federal Surprise Billing Rules. In general, a “surprise bill” happens when a patient isn’t given a choice of provider and receives an out-of-network charge. Some recent research have illuminated the scope of this problem, and were the catalyst for this new bill. The concepts are simple, but the rules are complex. The first phase became effective as of September 13, 2021. Tune in for the details!
