During this hour-long webinar, we will discuss in‐depth the big changes coming to Competitive Bidding this summer—including lead item pricing, the end of median bidding, bid surety bonds, and the use of single payment amounts (SPAs) to set rates in noncompetitive bidding areas (non‐CBAs).

Learning Objectives: The bid window is opening July 16, 2019 and will only be open for 60 days ‐ so now is the time to get educated on all the details you need to know to submit a smart bid. Industry experts will highlight new calculator tools and share their insights, tips, and strategies for this new round of Competitive Bidding so you can be prepared to bid in Round 2021. This is also an opportunity to ask – and get answers to – your specific questions about the upcoming Competitive Bidding Program.
