Register for an upcoming 2018 ACS General Surgery Coding Workshop


 

Registration is open to attend an American College of Surgeons (ACS) 2018 General Surgery Coding Workshop. With Medicare and third-party payor policy and coding changes taking effect this year, it is imperative that surgeons have accurate and up-to-date information to protect their reimbursements and optimize efficiency.

During the coding workshop, you will learn how to report surgical procedures and medical services and will have access to the tools necessary to succeed, including a coding workbook to keep for future reference with checklists, resource guides, templates, and examples. 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 ACS will offer the following five remaining coding workshops in 2018:

Chicago, IL, April 12–13

New York, NY, May 17–19

Nashville, TN, August 9–10

Chicago, IL, November 1–3

The ACS also will offer a three-day course, including a day devoted to trauma and critical care coding at the New York City and (November) Chicago workshops.
