    Review the Jan. 15 Quality Webinar as 3M expert Colleen Deighan discusses the 2020 CPT© code changes along with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) Final Rule, which also impacts outpatient payment and quality reporting.

    During the webinar, Colleen details the procedure codes that were added, deleted and revised, along with the reasons behind the changes. In addition, attendees will learn how some of the top policies for CMS’s OPPS affect quality reporting in the outpatient setting in 2020.
