ACS General Surgery Coding Workshop

2020 ACS General Surgery Coding WorkshopRegister now to attend a 2020 ACS General Surgery Coding Workshop. With Medicare and third-party payor policy and coding changes taking effect in 2020, and new reporting requirements for office visits in 2021, it is imperative that surgeons and their coding staff have accurate and up-to-date information to protect Medicare and other payor reimbursements, while also optimizing efficiency. 

Coding workshop attendees will learn how to correctly code the procedures and services they provide and will have access to tools necessary to succeed, including a coding workbook to keep for future reference. Physicians receive up to 6.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for each day of participation. In addition, each day of the workshop meets AAPC guidelines for 6.5 continuing education units. 

The Nashville, TN, and Chicago, IL, coding workshops will include a third day devoted to trauma and critical care coding
