    1. I have been billing and coding for over 7 years. Initially with specialty physician (ortho, gi) but currently (last 2 years) code for 2 multi-specialty ambulatory surgery centers and one ortho/plastic surgeon.
    2. I choose the AMA professional coders because we used to use Ingenix, but found out they while they use the same data put out by the AMA, they change it, reword it and put in information not necessarily needed. Also, our practice follows one set of guidelines -- AMA so it just makes sense to use the tools put out by them.
    3. Mainly, books, but also subscribe to CPT assistant, gastro coding, ortho coding, ophthalmology coding subscriptions, also use flash code and use the Medicare site for LCD's for our area.

    Has anyone heard from this group? It appears several of us were interested, but thus far, I've heard absolutely nothing.

    Any input or updates from others?
