Prepare your office for 2019
Physicians and practice managers invited

doctors-clipboard.jpg The Ohio State Medical Association is hosting its "Healthcare Policy and Reimbursement Updates" in Cincinnati on October 16. The program is an interactive way to get your office prepared for upcoming changes on MARCA Quality Reporting and CMS issues, including the proposal to "collapse" E/M payment rates; a measure that a r ecent AMA study reveals that physicians oppose because of the potential for unintended consequences.
Join OSMA CEO Todd Baker and Reggie Fields, Director of External and Professional Relations, as they provide up-to-the-minute information on:
*          Reimbursement and quality policy,
*          Industry trends,
*          Reporting requirements and updates,
*          Current and upcoming legislation and
*          Pending/proposed changes for 2019.
Payers will also be on hand to answer questions and provide help for your practice's biggest challenges.
Each event is approved for 2.5 AMA PRA Category 1™ credits (accepted by nursing, AAPC, AHIMA and many other organizations) and 2.5 PAHCOM CEU credits.

Register for the Cincinnati event by October 10.
