OPPS packaging: Addressing CMS' expansion and assessing the financial effect on your facility

Briefings on APCs, June 1, 2008

"CMS has started down a road to significant packaging," said Jugna Shah, MPH, president of Nimitt Consulting in Washington, DC, who spoke during HCPro's February 14 audioconference, "OPPS Packaging: Financial and Coding Implications of CMS' Drastic Change."
