Orlando, FL — November 04, 2008 — It is no surprise that medical coders and billers are essential to the success of every practice. A well-prepared coding and billing staff will deliver careful chart examination, accurate code selection, cleaner claims, fewer denials, and enhanced revenue.
Staying on top of coding changes affecting their specialty is crucial to a medical coder and biller. Why? Because even a simple mistake can lead to thousands of dollars in lost revenue.
In preparation for the 519 new, revised and deleted CPT changes expected for 2009, coding and billing professionals across the nation are expected to attend the 2009 Coding Update and Reimbursement Conference on Dec. 4-6, 2008 in Orlando, FL or Feb. 8-10, 2009 in Las Vegas, NV. Attendees at these conferences will be provided with the most up-to-date information for their specialty from nationally-recognized coding, billing and reimbursement leaders.
At the Orlando conference, there will be 12 specialty tracks to choose from, including: Ambulatory Surgery Center, Anesthesia, Clinical Lab, General Surgery, Multi-Specialty, Neurosurgery, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Optometry, Orthopedic, Pain Management and Pathology. Additionally, attendees will be able to jump from one specialty track to another free of charge.
At the Las Vegas conference, there will be 9 specialty tracks to choose from, including: Ambulatory Surgery Center, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Intervention Radiology, Multi-Specialty, Ob-Gyn, Orthopedic, Pathology, and Pediatrics. Additionally, attendees will be able to jump from one specialty track to another free of charge. Early-Bird registration rates end December 8th.
“These upcoming conferences are particularly important,” said Coding Conferences President Samantha Saldukas. “Staying on top of changes affecting their specialty will help coders and billers to maximize their skill-set, reduce claim denials, and receive the reimbursement they deserve; all while contributing to their practices financial stability in 2009.”
These national coding conferences have been organized by Coding Conferences, LLC and The Coding Institute. Sponsors and exhibitors at the Orlando conference include the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC), Ingenix, American Medical Association (AMA), ClaimRemedi, and Coding Cert.
