The Provider Roundtable issues call for new members

Physician Practice Insider, April 19, 2016

The Provider Roundtable (PRT) was established in 2003 to give CMS the benefit of providers' input and guidance on critical healthcare delivery issues.

For more than 13 years, the PRT has provided well-supported, data-driven comments to federal regulators regarding the operational impacts of both Proposed Rules and established regulations on various payments systems, including OPPS, IPPS, the Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule, and the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS).

The PRT regularly provides written comments and oral testimony to CMS, Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs), and the Hospital Outpatient Payment (HOP, formerly APC) Advisory Panel. These entities have frequently integrated the PRT's comments and requests into their final rulemaking and transmittals/claims processing instructions.

The PRT has issued a call for new members who have a strong interest in improving Medicare reimbursement under various payment systems.

If you have ideas about how CMS can provide fair and appropriate reimbursement to hospitals without increasing administrative burden, the PRT invites you to consider becoming a part of this dynamic and interactive group.

Membership in the PRT provides an opportunity to have your voice heard by decision-makers on the federal level. In addition to affecting national policy decisions, PRT members exchange ideas, reflect on coding and billing questions and challenges, and share innovative strategies?which improves their own organizations' daily operations and revenue integrity processes.
