Medicare Coding, Coverage and Payment - Manufacturer’s Guide to Launching Home Care Products

Medicare Coding, Coverage and Payment - Manufacturer’s Guide to Launching Home Care Products

Thursday, March 25, 2021 ~ 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Presented by Jeff Baird, Esq. and Cara Bachenheimer, Esq. of Brown & Fortunato

Complimentary Webinar Hosted by AAHomecare, Brown & Fortunato, and Medtrade

Manufacturers are increasingly bringing to market innovative products designed to be used by patients in their homes. In order to successfully launch a new product, manufacturers must understand the impact and role of HCPCS codes, Medicare coverage, and payment rules, as these will heavily influence how manufacturers market the new product. 

In this program, you will learn how to:   

  • Navigate Medicare’s coding, coverage and payment processes, and how these relate to non-Medicare payers such as commercial plans and state Medicaid programs.
  • Understand the key role that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has in issuing new HCPCS codes, and the responsibilities of the Pricing Data Analysis Contractor (“PDAC”) in assigning products to existing HCPCS codes.
  • Learn when and how to engage in these processes, including how to work with CMS and the PDAC, and you will receive tips for maximizing success.  

We will also cover the Medicare program’s new rule on coverage for Innovative Technology, and how this rule provides immediate coverage for “breakthrough devices” upon FDA approval.

Speaker Cara Bachenheimer has 30 years of experience helping manufacturers with HCPCS coding, coverage and payment issues and processes. Speaker Jeff Baird has over 30 years of experience representing manufacturers and DME suppliers on multiple issues, including billing and reimbursement.
