ACS On-Demand CPT Coding Courses

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is pleased to collaborate with KZA in offering four on-demand coding courses that will provide you with the tools necessary to increase revenue and decrease compliance risk. A workbook will be shipped to you prior to starting the on-demand course so you can follow along with the instructor as you learn at your own pace—starting and stopping when convenient. You will also be provided online access to the KZA Alumni site where you will find additional resources and frequently asked questions and correct coding.

ACS Chapter Meetings

As a Resident Member or Associate Fellow, you are encouraged to seek out your local ACS chapter to attend meetings and events in your local area. For more information, see Chapter information on the ACS website.
