The role of the consultant will be to offer members answers to questions on Medicare laws, regulations and guidelines, as well as quarterly webinars and regular attendance at the CAA monthly CAA Payer issues committee.
“We’re thrilled to be named CAA Medicare consultants,” said PWW Founding Partner Doug Wolfberg. “We look forward to working with CAA members in navigating the intricacies of Medicare reimbursement and compliance issues. We are grateful for the trust the Association has placed in us and are excited to get started.”
To further inform its offerings, PWW are conducting a Member Needs Survey to identify preferences for upcoming educational programs. Doug Wolfberg will also be a featured speaker at the live CAA Convention, which will take place at Lake Tahoe September 1–3, 2021.
As the CAA increases its membership and services, a request for proposal for an HR consultant will also be issued shortly to increase the level of member benefits it offers.
