A PMC Policy Committee Meeting

featuring a panel of coding experts from AMA, McKesson & NextGxDx


Date:
April 21, 2016
Time: 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. ET
Location: CSIS building
Address: 1616 Rhode Island Ave. NW
City: Washington, D.C. 20036
Lunch: Provided



PMC is pleased to announce that a panel of coding experts from the American Medical Association (AMA), McKesson and NextGxDx will discuss the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)' options for implementing the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) of 2014 during PMC's next policy committee meeting.


Under the terms of PAMA, CMS can rely on a solution that utilizes AMA's Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes or alternative coding systems for molecular diagnostics to implement the law. A solution that is too vague may make it difficult for the agency to identify appropriate prices for the most unique molecular technologies, while a solution that is too granular may be confusing and burdensome to implement. IT may play a role in identifying the most appropriate approach.


During the meeting, which will take place at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) building at 1616 Rhode Island Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. 20036 on April 21, 2016, the expert panelists will discuss and debate the available options before taking questions from the audience. CMS declined to send a representative to participate in the discussion.
