Wed, Dec 1, 2021 · 12:00 PM · Central Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

In a time when resources are more vital than ever, do not succumb to the 10% Medicare payment reduction under Medicare Part B Ambulance Fee Schedule (AFS) for a full calendar year due to lack of compliance on the Medicare Ground Ambulance Data Collection Survey (MGADC). Under the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, all providers of ground ambulance services are required to collect and report on organizational data such as utilization, staffing, costs, and revenue for a full 12-month consecutive period starting in 2022. Join Public Consulting Group (PCG) as they provide an overview of the program and best practices for completing this mandatory survey.

Thank you to our sponsor, Public Consulting Group (PCG).

  • Gain knowledge on the timeline of the program and available resources
  • Understand the required data elements and how to organize the collection process
  • Learn best practices for completing the survey
  • Be prepared to incorporate CMS’ proposed changes
