Medtrade adds bidding track

Friday, September 7, 2018

ATLANTA – Medtrade has added a track called “The New Competitive Bidding” to its educational lineup, in response to a recent proposed rule that would allow any Medicare-enrolled provider to supply DME to beneficiaries starting Jan. 1, 2019. “If you are considering a dive back into Medicare when the gap period starts, Medtrade is the ideal place to learn literally everything about your options,” said Kevin Gaffney, group show director. The track will address: a historical view of CB and how CB so quickly went off the rails; meaningful changes to CB contained in the anticipated final rule; reimbursement under the anticipated final rule; and practical steps to submit a bid. In addition, the track will have an interactive question and answer session with industry experts. The track is sponsored by Brown & Fortunato and speakers include the law firm’s Jeff Baird and Cara Bachenheimer. It is available to all attendees who purchase an educational conference pass.
