ASCRS Special Report Video and August 15 Webinar Will Help Physicians and Practices Understand the Proposed 2020 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

ASCRS and ASOA continue to provide our members with resources to understand the 2020 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule. In this special report video, ASCRS Director of Government Relations Nancey McCann provides details on the background for how physician services are revalued through the American Medical Association’s Relative Value Update Committee (RUC) process, ASCRS' and the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s role in the process, and next steps for ASCRS.

In addition to this video, ASCRS and ASOA will be hosting a webinar, “What You Need to Know: 2020 Proposed Cataract Reimbursement,” which will provide further details and give members the opportunity to ask questions. Nancey McCann will lead this webinar, which is free for all ASCRS and ASOA members, on Thursday, August 15, at 2:00 p.m. ET. The webinar will also be recorded and available on our website for future viewing. Registration is required. To register, click here.
