CMS unveils participants in new ambulance payment model
from Healthcare Dive
CMS has unveiled the providers that will participate in its new, voluntary payment model designed to alter reimbursement for emergency services for Medicare fee-for-services members. The agency selected 205 applicants from 36 states and D.C. to participate in the five-year payment program, known as the ET3 model, or emergency triage, treat and transport. The program gives greater latitude to first responders in caring for a beneficiary after a 911 call, CMS said Thursday.
