Billing for Advance Care Planning Conversations
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid began reimbursing providers for advance care planning in January 2016. The purpose of this course is to provide detailed information regarding the Medicare codes that provide reimbursement for advance care planning. This online course also explores strategies to encourage patient participation in advance care planning conversations. Case studies illustrate how the codes are used in various scenarios, followed by an interactive exercise so students can apply the knowledge learned in the course.
This course is part of the Effective Advance Care Planning: Skill Building for Everyone series. Learn more and get the Advance Care Planning guide.
