    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi, all. I'm not sure if this is best posted in gastro or general surgery, so I'm going to try both. Forgive me the double post.

    I'm looking for suggestions on where to get coding info on this specialty, especially to learn about any hot spots or tips and tricks needed to avoid coding errors.

    Any and all suggestions are welcome!

    I would check out your Medicare carrier and other major payors. Many now have policies that you need to follow and will give you the best information.
