    Unhappy Seeking help with future pain mgt coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for a good resource for pain management coding. I have been coding for IM and Family Practice. I am not sure what the best resources would be for me to really get myself ready for Pain Management. Can anyone give me some ideas or advice? I'm a little lost.

    Three resources I use without actually having to take time off work to go to conferences


    Type in Pain management into the search and you will see the presenters

    ASIPP website

    Last year they had preparing for 2010 seminar which was good. They will also have one of these on audioeducator for 2011. Might not be as many code changes for 2011 but still I will listen to it.

    And AAPC also provides webinars for Pain Management.

    I have found in a hours time you can pick up a lot of valauble knowledge and the prints out from the webinar helps to look back on.

    Smile BMSC test prep booklet

    The Board of Medical Specialty Coding (DecisionHealth) has a test prep booklet for pain management for I think $69. I used it to prepare for the ACS-PM credential they offer. It's small but it covers things pretty well.
