Welcome to my blog! As the incoming Chair of the Advocacy committee, my goal is to learn as much as I can about the matters or issues facing the vascular community. The blog is my way of sharing what I have learned. In order to advocate, or support a particular cause or policy, I need to hear from you!
Each month, I will introduce a topic related to Advocacy. January's topic is "Reimbursement". Some questions I will attempt to answer are:
- What is an APC?
- What changes were made to HOPPS APC? How does that affect our reimbursement?
- What happened to code 93965? G0389/76706?
- What is an LCD? How do I find my LCD?
- What is Coding Advisor?
Some of the other topics we will explore throughout the year include:
- Scope of Practice
- State Licensure
- Advanced Practice
If you have an idea for my blog, let me know. If it has to do with advocacy, it matters to me!
