Medicare to assign APCs (ambulatory payment classifications) at September meeting:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The second biannual meeting of Medicare's advisory panel on ambulatory payment classification (APC) groups has been scheduled for September 1-3 at its headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced on August 5. Medicare receives a certain amount of money every year for outpatient care, then decides what it will pay for the hundreds of outpatient services by putting them in their appropriate APC group. To make sure it has an adequate amount of money, each group is assigned a percentage amount, or weight, of the total. The panel will be asked to discuss the clinical integrity of the APC groups and their associated weights. The deadline for registration is August 23.
