ACOG Coding Workshop, Albuquerque, NM (17C2)

March 24 — 26, 2017

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 days. This format enables physicians to choose the topic or topics of interest to them. 

Agenda format
•Day I — E/M Services and Medicare’s Documentation Guidelines
•Day II — Procedural Coding
•Day III — Obstetric Coding

Through question and answer sessions, discussions and case studies, physicians should 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.

ACOG will hold this workshop in conjunction with the second MACRA Workshop of 2017 which will take place on March 23.
