Baffled by Preventive Services?

Are you confused by the new Preventive Services offered by Medicare?

The Medicare Learning Network has recently updated several of their brochures to include changes from the Affordable Car Act.

Per CMS's press release, the following resources are now available:

“Quick Reference Information: Preventive Services” offers coverage, coding, and payment information on the wide variety of preventive services Medicare covers.  View, download, or print at http://www.CMS.gov/MLNProducts/downloads/MPS_QuickReferenceChart_1.pdf.

“Quick Reference Information: The ABCS of Providing the Initial Preventive Physical Examination (IPPE)” offers a list of the elements included in the IPPE, along with some frequently asked questions.  View, download, or print at http://www.CMS.gov/MLNProducts/downloads/MPS_QRI_IPPE001a.pdf.
