Medicare Experts/Senior Access

Welcome to the Colorado M.E.S.A. Initiative website!

We’re here to help primary care providers throughout the state of Colorado become more skilled at Medicare coding and documentation, and more comfortable taking care of our senior population. We hope that, as a result, more providers and practices will open their arms to Medicare patients and seniors will have better access to primary care.

Here’s a brief welcome video featuring Donald Murphy, MD, and Elane Shirar, MD.


New! In our latest MESA update, recorded July 2014, Dr. Murphy and Holly LeMaster highlight changes from CMS for 2014, discuss chronic care management, transitional care management (TCM), the MESA core curriculum principles of Medicare coding & documentation, practice management tips and more. Watch below.
