Polsinelli’s Cybil Roehrenbeck Presents at Diagnostics Conference

December 6, 2016 | 9:15 – 10:00 A.M. ET | Boston, Massachusetts 

Polsinelli is proud to announce that Public Policy Group member Cybil G. Roehrenbeck will be a speaker at the upcoming Semi-Annual Diagnostic Coverage and Reimbursement Conference East. The presentation is entitled "Industry Reflection and Roundtable for PAMA Best Practices." Cybil will help answer questions and provide insight regarding access to upcoming changes for laboratories due to the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA). She will be joined by panelists Kyle Fetter (XIFIN), Wendy Baehne (TELCOR), and Stephen Hull (Hull Associates MedTech Consulting).

The conference will delve into crucial issues for labs in 2017, taking into account the evolving payer landscape as well as the integration of PAMA. Establishing clinical utility with commercial payers and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for purposes of coverage will be a foundational topic of the agenda. Further areas of investigation include risk sharing agreements as they can be applied to diagnostics, best practices in engaging payers in medical conversations, processes for winning claims and denials and insight on the growth of lab benefit management providers.
