It’s Time to Talk About Opioids Webinar

Learn more about this event

It is in the news. This topic is quickly becoming front and center with the OIG, AMA and Capitol Hill. Many states are creating new laws to monitor the issue. If this is that big on their radar then the coding and reporting becomes a major focus as well. Opioid use does not just affect patients in one specialty, this can impact the patient’s care from any provider in any place of service. In this session we will discuss the issue, review some of the initiatives that are currently in place to address opioid use and abuse, look at some current statistics and we will talk about the correct coding as we walk through some case studies.
