We are implementing the 3M™ Enhanced Ambulatory Patient Grouping (EAPG) system, effective January 1, 2021. The EAPG is an outpatient reimbursement methodology designed to pay providers based on the resources used in an ambulatory visit.
In preparation for the switch, we are hosting a virtual EAPG Provider Orientation session on October 15, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. We urge all providers responsible for billing and reviewing payments for hospital outpatient, ambulatory surgery center, partial psychiatric and partial substance abuse services to join.
Session topics will include:
- Why EAPGs?
- Will the move impact how we’re currently billing?
- How will payment differ from the current fee schedules?
