May 9: EDPMA Data Collection Project Webinar for Skeptics and Analysts

As the saying goes, “Data is King (or Queen)!” And legislators and regulators are moved to action by data and not anecdotes.

In conjunction with ACEP to better advocate for our members and the emergency medicine specialty, we are collecting data on your out-of-network (OON) payments focused on the Qualifying Payment Amount (QPA). This project will evaluate whether major payors are following the law by providing QPAs in writing for each CPT code that was paid or denied, assess the prevalence and size of variations between QPAs and the “Allowed Amounts” for OON payments and more. See the data collection Excel tool and Frequently Asked Questions about this project.

We understand there are questions about the requested data, how the data will be used and concerns about privacy and antitrust issues.

We get it!

That’s why EDPMA will host an informational webinar this Monday, May 9 at 1pm EDT to answer these questions and more for compliance managers, data analysists, business intelligence teams and skeptics. This webinar is open to both members and non-members.

Ed Gaines, JD and Greg Hufstetler CPA, the outside data consultant, will review project details and answer your questions.

April 18 EDPMA Webinar: The Federal IDR Portal Is Launching – Now What?

EDPMA’s next educational webinar, “The Federal IDR Portal Is Launching – Now What?,” will be held on Monday, April 18 at 1:00 pm eastern. Please note that registration will close at 12 pm eastern on Monday, April 18.

In addition to important new patient protections for emergency and certain non-emergency services, a key feature of the No Surprises Act is the introduction of a Federal IDR system to resolve payment disputes between providers and payers when state law provides no mechanism for doing so.

The departments tasked with implementing the law have laid out a plan to administer the IDR provisions via a “Federal IDR portal.” The launch of the portal has been delayed as the federal agencies tasked with implementing the IDR system have worked through launch issues in the wake of the ongoing litigation related to the IDR provisions of the No Surprises Act, even while disputes have begun to work through timelines that would otherwise make them eligible for initiating the IDR process.

Per HHS, the Federal IDR portal should launch the week of April 11. To ensure our members are fully prepared, EDPMA will host a member webinar to share available information on the IDR portal launch and take member questions.

This is a member-only benefit.
