Join the MFAS Legislative Committee, Insurance Committee, and Board of Directors for a Member Town Hall on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham, MA. Our profession has seen enormous strides in the last few decades, but with progress comes slow-downs. The Scope of Practice legislation again came very close to passage this year, but was not ultimately successful. On the heels of that, a federal CMS Rules Change was issued, which will drastically affect reimbursements for podiatrists should the rule be adopted.
We invite you to attend this Town Hall to hear more about these issues, how they impact your practice, and what the path forward for the profession looks like. This will be a collaborative event with plenty of opportunities for discussion, comments, and questions from members. If you have ever received a call for action or insurance alert and wanted to know more, this is your opportunity to engage!
Light refreshments will be served.
This is an MFAS-member only event. Registration is free for MFAS members.
