Due to 2020 policy changes, PAs, in certain circumstances, are now allowed to order therapeutic shoes. While the ability to order diabetic shoes is now somewhat more permissive, the practice is still cumbersome and continues to contain unnecessary restrictions on PAs.
A new code structure for new and established outpatient Evaluation and Management (E/M) services is in effect. PA Emily Hill helps you understand what you need to know about the changes and how they will impact your own practice.
Many significant policy changes to PA practice occurred over the past year. AAPA is providing updated information about those changes in the 2021 edition of the Essential Guide to PA Reimbursement, now available for purchase.
Transparency is at the heart of many AAPA advocacy efforts. Inadequate identification of PAs and the services they provide creates flawed data which inaccurately inform important decisions made by patients, policy makers, payers, researchers, and others. A new white paper highlights these issues.
