Change is the only constant that we have today. Everything hospitals, managed care organizations, ACOs and providers were doing last year at this time has been changed as we work to survive COVID-19. As you know the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has changed so many rules so over the past few months it is hard to know where we are and what we are required to do.
Join me on November 4 as I have a conversation with our medical expert Dr. Ronald Hirsch to address your issues and answer your questions.
