Sound the Alarm: The Medicare Cost Survey is in Full Force

by Carly Zoerb | 11/07/2022

The Center of Medicare and Medicaid Services has launched a mandatory program that impacts all emergency transport providers.

The Medicare Ground Ambulance Data Collection System is a result of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, in which all providers of ground ambulance services are required to collect and report on organizational data such as utilization, staffing, costs, and revenue for a full 12-month consecutive period.

Half of all providers have already begun their collection period while the remaining half will be required to start in 2023. Join Public Consulting Group (PCG) November 17 at 1 PM (Eastern) as they provide an overview of the program and best practices for reducing your risk of the enforced payment reduction for noncompliance.

During this important webinar, you will:

  • Gain knowledge on the 2023 timeline of the program and available resources
  • Understand the required data elements and how to organize the collection process
  • Learn best practices for completing the survey
  • Latest changes to the Instrument and how they impact the collection process
