Last chance for the Coding and Regulatory Symposium!
All of the coding and regulatory education that you learn at the Coding and Regulatory Symposium is too good to keep in Vegas! Attend the class this week, then bring back all kinds of information to share with coders, clinicians, billers, and administrators.
This conference is put on by Selman-Holman Associates. Take a look at just part of the agenda:.
- April 2011 changes and how they impact your coding and operations
- Wound care coding: Debridements aren’t surgical wounds, pressure ulcers never go away in coding, but they might in OASIS, and do you use aftercare of surgery (V58.xx) and wound dressing codes (V58.3x) together? These are just some of the confusing topics we’ll clear up.
- The money follows proper coding. Really. Code by patient acuity and services, and the money will come. Learn the proper way to code and prioritize your codes.
- HIPAA 5010 Compliance: Have you checked your checklist of where your agency should be in preparation for the changes?
- Interactive coding both days! Sharpen your coding and OASIS interaction skills.
- V57: Evil code or often-used friend? It should be a need-to-use code that has many guidelines surrounding its use … learn them and never worry about coding therapy again. Plus: learn the regulatory and billing issues behind it.
- Documentation! Support your coding and appeal downcoding.
2 days of education for $385! And you’re in Las Vegas!
We’ll see you Jan. 27 and 28!
