CMS Webinar – Final Rules Overview – Impact for RHCs, Monday, December 11 at 2:00 p.m.
The recently released Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) 2024 final rules contain a significant number of changes for Rural Health Clinics (RHCs).
This year, the rules include details about the implementation of the two additional provider types billable as RHC Medicare providers beginning January 1, 2024, as well as information on the Intensive Outpatient Services Treatment category. According to the National Association of Rural Health Clinics (NARHC), RHCs will now have a way to bill for remote physiologic monitoring and other care management services under an expanded G5011 code.
During this webinar, policy experts will provide an overview of changes to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and the Medicare Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System that will go into effect on January 1, 2024. Among many, these changes include:
- Expanded services covered under the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code G0511 (chronic care management and behavioral health care provided by RHC’s)
- An extension of payment for telehealth services until December 31, 2024
- The addition of marriage and family therapists and mental health counselors as provider types billable for substance use treatment
- The establishment of intensive outpatient programs for substance use treatment
RHCs are encouraged to join this upcoming webinar to hear the discussion about the final rule and receive answer to your questions about the implementation of these various policy proposals.
