CMS to Host Special Open-Door Forum to Introduce New Documentation Look Up Tool

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has announced that it will hold a special Open-Door Forum conference call to educate the public about a new initiative tasked with developing an online resource where providers and suppliers can look up the documentation requirements necessary for Medicare to cover a service or item.  While the initiative is still in the early stages of development, CMS has indicated that it is interested in receiving feedback from the public as it develops this initiative.

AOPA will be represented on the conference call and will provide a report to AOPA members upon its conclusion.  The call is scheduled for 2pm until 3pm EDT on Tuesday, October 23, 2018.  The conference call dial in number for anyone who wishes to participate is 1-800-837-1935 and the participant ID is 7277693.  The call is open to the public and no pre-registration is required.

As stated earlier, AOPA will be represented on the call and will provide a report to its members on the content of the call.
