CMS Launches Podcast

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) launched “CMS: Beyond the Policy,” a new podcast highlighting updates and changes to policies and programs.

The inaugural episode will focus on Evaluation and Management Coding. The CY 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule included significant changes to how doctors and other clinicians document office and outpatient visits billed to Medicare. These changes are part of CMS’s Patients Over Paperwork initiative. New episodes of the podcast will be released periodically and will welcome a range of subject-matter experts and stakeholders, including Administrator Verma.

The first episode will be available for download on iTunes and Google Play in the near future.
