CMS Hosts April 25 Informational Global Surgery Call for Required Data Reporting

On Tuesday, April 25, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. ET. CMS will host a call on global surgery codes and the required data for reporting postoperative care. The call will review new requirements that go into effect July 1, 2017, for certain practices, and resources that providers can use for reporting. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.

As a reminder, the CY 2017 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule final rule requires data collection on post-surgical care from practitioners in practices of 10 or more practitioners furnishing specified ophthalmic 90-day global procedures in Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, and Rhode Island. Below are the codes for required global surgery reporting for CY 2017.
