The Orange County Gastroenterology Society (OCGI) had the pleasure of spending the evening at The Ranch in Anaheim and discussing ulcerative colitis, MACRA and MIPS with Glenn D. Littenberg, MD compliments of AbbVie.
While maintaining a private Gastroenterology practice and independent ambulatory endoscopy center in Pasadena, California, Dr. Littenberg has long represented GI and internal medicine to the AMA CPT Panel. In 2006, he completed an 8 year term on the Editorial Panel. In addition, he had chaired the Coding Subcommittee of the American College of Physicians (ACP) for several years.
Currently, Dr. Littenberg is the CPT Advisor for ASGE and chair of ASGEs Reimbursement Committee in addition to having served as chair of the Practice Management Committee for 6 years. He wrote and edited many chapters of ASGEs Coding Primer: A Guide for Gastroenterologists, newly revised for 2016, and speaks widely on healthcare reform, coding, Medicare compliance, and trends in GI Practice. He is the Chief Medical Officer of his 50+ physician GI group, inSite Digestive Healthcare which now spans from San Francisco to Orange County and is the largest GI group in California. He has spoken at national conferences about MACRA implications for GI practice and works with his “MIPS Task Force” within his group to plan the group’s reporting for MIPS.
The lively Q&A following Dr. Littenberg’s informative and often humorous presentation helped shed a light on the difficult yet inevitable changes to come in GI practices. Dr. Littenberg has graciously shared his presentation slides with OCGI.Littenberg _MACRA _GI Practice OCGI 417 handout pdf
