New CMS updates: Global Surgery Data Collection

22 May 2017 10:56 AM | Anonymous

Practitioners in Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, and Rhode Island are required to report on claims data on post-operative visits furnished during the global period of specified procedures using CPT code 99024, beginning July 1, 2017. 

The specified procedures are those that are furnished by more than 100 practitioners and either are nationally furnished more than 10,000 times annually or have more than $10 million in annual allowed charges. Practitioners who only practice in practices with fewer than 10 practitioners are exempted from required reporting, but are encouraged to report if feasible. 

Although reporting is required for global procedures furnished on or after July 1, 2017, we encourage all practitioners to begin reporting as soon as possible.
