We have the answer to this $64 million question


Do you want to know what the regional pricing might look like under the national rollout of competitive bidding scheduled to take place Jan. 1, 2016?

Andrea Stark, a reimbursement consultant with MiraVista, can give you a pretty good idea.

In a webcast that aired on Jan. 13 and that is still available on demand, Stark walked attendees through an example of what the pricing for oxygen concentrators (E1390) might look like in Bartlesville, Okla., part of the Southwest Region, one of eight regions included in the rollout.

Stark also walked attendees through what the pricing for oxygen concentrators would look like on a regional level.

As you can imagine, this information really resonated with attendees. Stark received emails from attendees after the webcast to go through examples of what pricing would look like in their cities and regions.
