CMS Reimbursement for Advance Care Planning

Two Advance Care Planning-focused CPT codes (99497 and 99498) are listed on the 2016 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, allowing for additional time to discuss this important topic with patients.  Exactly how these codes will be used and reimbursed is still being determined by regional CMS claims processors but Honoring Choices is working on understanding the complexities of the process and has developed a summary sheet which answers many questions surrounding these codes.  We invite you to share your experiences with us as you process claims using these codes and we will compile a directory of tips and best practices over the first year of implementation.  Questions and comments welcome – 612-362-3703 or by This email address is being protected from spambots.
