ACOG Coding Workshop, Santa Fe, NM

Santa Fe

October 7 — 9, 2016

Eldorado Hotel & Spa

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

ACOG's Committee on Health Economics and Coding and ACOG's Executive Board believe physicians must educate themselves and their staff about appropriate coding and billing practices. Get the resources you need for successfully billing with the new ICD-10-CM data set.

Diagnostic coding principles and guidelines will be illustrated with the current HIPAA standard code sets; ICD-10-CM and CPT. This workshop will consist of up to three modules. This format enables physicians to choose the topic or topics of interest to them.

The modules are:

  • Module I — E/M Services and Medicare’s Documentation Guidelines
  • Module II — Gynecologic Surgical Coding
  • Module III — Obstetric Coding

NOTE: Only the first three Coding Workshops in 2016 will offer the stand-alone ICD-10-CM Module (Module IV); New Orleans, San Diego and Orlando. Module IV guidelines and other content will be incorporated into Modules I-III for the Chicago Workshop, April 22-24, 2016 and all subsequent 2016 Workshops.

Through question and answer sessions, discussions and case studies, physicians learn how correct coding can positively affect their practice. This workshop is designed for physicians. However, if accompanied by a physician, up to five office coding staff may also attend. After the physician has attended, his/her staff may attend alone for up to two years after the date the physician attended. Contact the Registrar for more information.
