• Milan Shah, director, division of reinsurance operations in the payment policy and financial management group
The panel will speak at 11:10 a.m. EST on Wednesday, June 30, the first day of the main conference. They will analyze the 2022 HHS Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters, discuss the operational and process changes for 2021, including guidelines that impact telehealth, and assess the changes to RADV Audits and schedules for the upcoming 12 months so attendees can organize their teams to be ready to achieve a successful audit.
