Health Policy and Advocacy Issues 


The California Society of Interventional Pain Physicians is providing a unique, townhall type webinar on health policy and advocacy of both state and national issues that are of interest to CALSIPP members as well as pain physicians across the country.


The webinar consists of two separate sessions, each with a moderator and three expert panelists on state and national issues. The webinar will be 90 minutes. The first session will be 30 minutes focused on issues in the state of California that may have an impact on pain physician's practices and patients. After a 10 minute break, the next 30 minute session will focus on larger national issues related to recent actions of the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), national coverages, as well as ongoing concerns regarding prescription medications and physician autonomy.


The webinar is intended to provide discussion and different perspectives from experts. Following each session there will be a brief question and answer period that will bring additional viewpoints from attendees. The objective of this webinar is to provide focus on healthcare policies and advocacy issues that are of interest to CALSIPP members and America's pain community.

Collapse Proactive Auditing: Can You Afford Not To?

As individuals we have undergone many changes in our day-to-day life in 2020. Changes are also coming to our professional lives. Major changes impacting Evaluation and Management (EM) coding in 2021 are around the corner as well as the addition of items to the Office of Inspector General (OIG) Workplan that may impact pain management providers. 


Effective training and education as well as conducting monitoring and auditing are elements of an effective compliance plan.  Now is the time to develop and maintain a proactive auditing program. 


We will discuss the benefits of monitoring and auditing as related to in-person EM encounters and forecasting revenue changes in 2021 as well as telemedicine visits.


Documentation of medical necessity remains an area requiring ongoing focus by means of education and training to match the ever-changing payer regulations. Other topics include recent reports related to facet procedures and, of course, urine drug testing documentation and the relationship of these issues to ongoing monitoring of auditing.
