Sound the Alarm: The Medicare Ground Ambulance Data Collection System is in Full Force

November 17, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This is not a drill…we repeat, this is not a drill! 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.

Public Consulting Group (PCG) co-hosted a webinar with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) on 11/17 to provide an overview of the program and best practices for reducing your risk of the enforced payment reduction for noncompliance.

During the webinar, PCG and IAFC discussed the 2023 timeline of the program, required data elements, best practices, and how the latest changes to the Instrument will impact your collection process.

The recording of the webinar is free and can be accessed here.
