570,000 Use Medicare Coverage for Advance Care Planning

Data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services shows that more than 570,000 beneficiaries used advance care planning appointments in 2016, the first year such services were billable.

Earlier CMS data showed that 220,000 people had participated in the first six-months of 2016. The rate of claims accelerated in the second half of the year, likely due to providers learning more about the new billing procedures.
