Advance Care Planning (ACP) has been a billable service since January 1, 2016. Not every clinical practitioner is qualified to have these conversations by virtue of title or position. Obtaining the skills to have these conversations is not only required for billing, but utilizing these skills along with the appropriate tools and resources will improve the effectiveness of the conversation.

If you want to improve your skills in assisting patients with developing and communicating their end of life wishes and ensure appropriate reimbursement for these conversations, join us for this webinar to gain a greater understanding of how you can provide or expand this service.

Objectives: Upon completion of the webinar, participants will understand:

1. The various approaches to the conversation and be able to describe the ACP process for the advance directive product
2. The similarities and differences in the advance directive products/tools
3. The reimbursement opportunities for providing ACP through a team-based approach

Interesting Fact:
Advance Care Planning is one of the procedures allowable under a team-based care approach, and if incorporated as part
of the wellness prevention plan, patients receive the service free of charge.
