ACOG Coding Workshop, Chicago IL (18C10)

October 12 — 14, 2018


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 to successfully transition to the new payment models under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) as well as help to continue improving your diagnostic and procedural coding skills.

Diagnostic and procedural 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 —Gynecologic Procedure 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. Once 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.
