For the lowest price anywhere ($25/CEU), get prepared now so you are ready when the 2013 CPT® code changes go into effect. Preparing for code updates is more than learning the codes and descriptions. You need to know how to apply the new codes and what should be documented to support the codes.
Our half-day interactive workshop will be available in a city near you (choose from 46 nationwide locations) and will provide personalized in-depth instruction and hands-on application of the coming code and guideline changes. You will also receive materials you can use as a reference throughout 2013.
- Learn how to apply the updates to common coding cases (hands-on exercises with expert presenters)
- Identify potential coding mistakes that will impact revenue as a result of these changes
- Get your office compliant ahead of the transition
- Review rationales for all major changes; understand the "what" and the "why"
- Prepare your physician for compliant documentation
- Receive an in-depth code change manual that explains the changes
- Manual includes rationales for all major changes – get the "why," not just the "what"
- On-demand recording included for all live participants (replay author's presentation as needed)
