MEDICARE’S COVID-19 ADVANCE PAYMENT PROGRAM: Frequently Asked Questions

Date: April 8, 2020

Time: 02:00PM - 03:00PM

You must be registered to participate!

Description:

The CARES Act provided the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) with expanded authority to make available advance payments to physicians to assist during the COVID-19 emergency. As a result of the quick rollout of the program, there are many questions regarding the procedure to apply for and obtain the funds, as well as the timeline and specifics for recoupment. Recently, the AMA met with CMS senior officials to raise these questions, many of them provided to the AMA by ASCRS and ASOA. Join Nancey McCann, ASCRS Director of Government Relations, for a review of the answers. If you have general questions regarding the Advance Payment Program, please send them to asoa@asoa.org no later than close of business, Tuesday, April 7th. Questions must be general in nature and not specific to the practice.
