AdvaMed 2017 Payment Policy Conference

May 16, 2017 to May 17, 2017
Baltimore, MD
Payment and Reimbursement
Conference

Overview

Join us in Baltimore, MD where AdvaMed’s 3rd Annual Payment Policy Conference will convene device manufacturers, hospitals, insurers, CMS, and Capitol Hill for an in-depth discussion and analysis of the reimbursement and coverage landscapes.

The need for a medical device to demonstrate how it improves efficiency and quality of care is only increasing as the industry moves towards alternative payment models in this changing payer world. But, after Washington was flipped upside down during the last election, an unclear future for healthcare has put the industry on edge.

During the conference, we will explore how to navigate healthcare reform, while still showing value as providers take on more risk with quality and cost metrics in new payment models.

This event is open to both AdvaMed members and non-members. A housing block is available at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor for attendees traveling from out of town.
