#GMVEMSC Training: FW: Jan 30 Free Webinar - How To Use Code A0998 To Receive Payment



Learn to use Code A0998 to receive payment for Community Paramedicine Services

Thursday, January 30 — 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. Central (2-3 p.m. ET)



Community Paramedic


Anthem supports the growing and important role community paramedics play in facilitating better health care delivery. In 2018, for example, Anthem became one of the first major insurers to reimburse EMS providers for providing medically appropriate care on-site or at-home, rather than relying on transportation to the ED as basis for payment. This updated policy, known as Code A0998, represents one of several ways Anthem is committed to advancing community paramedicine to drive more comprehensive care. 


To learn more about Code A0998 and Anthem's community paramedicine efforts, we invite you to join The Evolving Role of Community Paramedicine webinar on January 30 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Central (2-3 p.m. ET). We hope to see you there!
