Sponsored by the ASCRS Government Relations Committee

The move toward value-based payment in Medicare is not going way. The 2019 Government Relations Session 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. Mr. Miller will draw from his vast experience on payment and delivery systems to examine the current situation and will then lead a panel discussion on possible APMs in ophthalmology. Finally, Steve Forbes, one-time presidential candidate 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.
