Overview

Join us for the second course in the new ACFAS Practice Management Education Series - Coding and Billing of the Foot and Ankle Surgeons. This day-and-a-half course can be taken with or without the Coding Fundamentals course and offers attendees a deeper dive into putting the coding and billing fundamentals into play to help you get properly reimbursed for the care you provide. 

Coding and Billing for the Foot and Ankle Surgeon is touted as an ACFAS favorite and can be taken each year as new coding rules come into play. By attending this popular course, you will walk away with the tools you need to simplify your coding and reimbursement practices. 

Join expert faculty as they help bring the coding and billing process to life with actual patient cases and coding scenarios. Don't miss out - sign up today and learn why ACFAS continues to be the obvious choice for surgical coding and practice management. Bundle pricing is available if you take both Coding and Billing for the Foot and Ankle Surgeon and Coding Fundamentals as part of the three-day series in Orlando.

This course can also be bundled with the Coding Fundamentals program being held the day prior on August 25 at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. Bundle pricing is available.
