Quality Webinar

A new year, a new start: Exploring the 2021 updates for OPPS and CPT®

January 20 & 21, 2021

Join this 3M Quality Webinar as 3M expert Colleen Deighan discusses the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) Final Rule, which impacts outpatient payment and quality reporting. Colleen will also review the 2021 CPT code changes.

Attendees will learn how some of the top policies for CMS’s OPPS affect quality reporting in the outpatient setting in 2021. Additionally, each year the American Medical Association (AMA) releases the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code set changes for the upcoming year.

This year there are updates to 329 codes that you and your team should know about in order to avoid costly compliance or reimbursement issues. During the webinar, Colleen will detail the procedure codes that were added, deleted and revised, along with the reasons behind the changes.

Attendees will gain a better understanding of:
 

  • Updates and revisions to CMS’ Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR)
  • AMA’s updates to the 329 code changes for CPT in 2021
  • Key changes to the surgery section of CPT
  • Significant revisions to Evaluation and Management Services (E/M) for 2021

Because we anticipate a high volume of registrations, we are offering a recording of the live presentation during session two.
