Medicare Reimbursement Policy

Background

Medicare establishes and regularly updates its rules governing the payment systems that it uses to pay providers and suppliers of Medicare-covered items and services, including hospitals, doctors, durable medical equipment suppliers and others.  These rules are typically updated on an annual basis. In addition to updating a payment methodology or payment rates, Medicare’s payment rules often contain additional policies that can significantly impact Medicare providers and suppliers.

AdvaMed Efforts

AdvaMed reviews and analyzes these payment rules, and engages with the various AdvaMed work groups in order to develop substantive comments for Medicare to improve or clarify the policies that will likely affect our member companies.
