Is This the End of Fee-for-Service? Don’t Miss the Government Relations Symposium at the 2019 ASCRS•ASOA Annual Meeting in San Diego

The move toward value-based payment in Medicare is not going away.

Attendees of the 2019 ASCRS•ASOA Annual Meeting will not want to miss the Government Relations Symposium, to be held Sunday, May 5, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. The symposium, titled “Is This the End of Fee-for-Service?” will explore the bipartisan effort to move physicians out of Medicare fee-for-service and into advanced alternative payment models (APMs).

The session will begin with Harold D. Miller, nationally recognized expert on healthcare payment and delivery reform, who will examine the current situation and then lead a panel discussion on possible APMs in ophthalmology, including the challenges, as well as efforts to save money and improve quality, with ASCRS ophthalmologists participating in different delivery systems.

Finally, Steve Forbes, one-time presidential candidate and head of Forbes Media, will wrap up the session by sharing his perspective on the move toward value-based payment and how the costs of healthcare affect the U.S. economy.

Don’t miss this timely session to hear how these changes may impact ophthalmology—and you!
