    Default Surgical Follow-up

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone point me in the right direction. I really need to get more information/education on how to fight insurance companies on their bundling issues. Does anyone know any good seminars/conferences that really base their course(s) on denials?

    I understand that there is a lot of bundling issues with Orthopedics but I'm getting tired of not having all the info I could possibly have to win these battles. I've used NCCI and CodeX to plead my case but sometimes get nowhere (especially biceps tenotomies via scope). I've already filed a few complaints with the State Insurance Dept but am not sure where that will get me. It's VERY frustrating!! Thanks.
