Overcome ACP problems with some simple measures
As per a new OIG report, Medicare’s Advance Care Planning (ACP) experienced a bumpy ride during the pandemic. Basic mistakes by the providers are the primary reason behind them.
The ACP service has been payable since 2016 through a 30-minute code 99497 and an add-on code 99498. It was observed that between the years 2020 and 2021, code 99497 grew by 10% (after the fall in 2019) whereas the use of 99498 went down.
