 CMS-Voluntary Alignment

Voluntary Alignment is the process where Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries select, or “voluntarily align” with a primary clinician. Beginning in June 2017, beneficiaries can select their primary clinician on MyMedicare.gov. CMS believes voluntary alignment will strengthen beneficiaries’ engagement in their health care. CMS will use beneficiaries’ selections to hold ACOs responsible for the quality of beneficiaries’ care and overall medical costs. Please share the Beneficiary Fact Sheet with your Medicare –fee –for –service patients. Medicare Beneficiary Assignment Fact Sheet 

COLOGUARD Is Now Covered By Medicare

Cologuard is intended for the qualitative detection of colorectal neoplasia associated DNA markers and for the presence of occult hemoglobin in human stool. A positive result may indicate the presence of colorectal cancer or advanced adenoma and should be followed by diagnostic colonoscopy. Cologuard is indicated to screen adults and is not a replacement for diagnostic colonoscopy or surveillance colonoscopy in high risk individuals. Our ACO
Colorectal Cancer Screening Quality measures for MSSP and Blue Cross need improvement. Please consider this option for your patients. Cologuard order form.pdf
