Start or refresh your coding and billing foundation October 12 with Coding Fundamentals, then stick around for Coding and Billing for the Foot and Ankle Surgeon October 13-14.  Take one course, or save when you register for both!  

Let the ACFAS coding experts show you how to utilize the 2023 coding changes for maximum reimbursement as you learn about:

  • Changes in E&M decision making
  • Changes in hospital level billing
  • Changes in consultation billing
  • New CPT codes and utilization
  • Further clarification on the E&M decision making

Participate in surgical coding scenarios including forefoot reconstruction, arthrodesis, office procedures, rearfoot and ankle reconstruction, tendon surgery, arthroscopy, trauma and diabetic foot surgery.

Physicians are encouraged to bring office coders to work as a team to help maximize reimbursement.
