2019 ASCRS•ASOA Medicare Participation Kit Now Available

ASCRS•ASOA has updated the Medicare Participation Kit for 2019 to help members make decisions about their participation in Medicare. The kit provides details about Medicare in 2019, such as the 0.25% update factor, which was reduced from the MACRA-instituted 0.5% level as an offset for the Bipartisan Budget Act. In addition, the kit outlines the three options for Medicare participation: participating provider, non-participating provider, and private contracting.

Physicians who intend to change their Medicare participation status for 2019 must do so during the open enrollment period, and their decision must be postmarked no later than December 31, 2018.

If you need additional assistance, please contact Allison Madson, manager of regulatory affairs, at amadson@ascrs.org or 703-591-2220.
