MEDICARE’S COVID-19 ADVANCE PAYMENT PROGRAM: Frequently Asked Questions

Date: 
Wednesday, April 8, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

 

Recorded April 8, 2020

Description:

The CARES Act provided the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) with expanded authority to make available advance payments to physicians to assist during the COVID-19 emergency. As a result of the quick rollout of the program, there are many questions regarding the procedure to apply for and obtain the funds, as well as the timeline and specifics for recoupment. Recently, the AMA met with CMS senior officials to raise these questions, many of them provided to the AMA by ASCRS and ASOA. Join Nancey McCann, ASCRS Director of Government Relations, for a review of the answers.
