*Meet one-on-one with physician faculty who lead NASS’ CPT, RUC and reimbursement efforts;
*Examine real life cases and perform operative note dissection in the hands-on coding sessions;
*Participate in an interactive panel discussion with leading experts in the spine coding industry.
What’s on Your Mind? Interactive breakout sessions with faculty to ensure that no stone is left unturned and all questions are addressed by the end of the course.
Managing Denials and Appeals: During an interactive discussion on surgical denials and the appeals process, join faculty as we examine a payer policy on lumbar fusion and learn how to avoid unwanted denials, peer reviews and the murky appeals process. Both payer and provider perspectives will be presented, after which the audience will have time to ask questions of the panel and discuss issues relevant to their practice.
Breakout Sessions: Faculty will hold separate breakout sessions for physicians and coding/billing/allied health/ physicians new to spine. The breakout sessions allow attendees to ask basic to complex questions particular to their specialty. Faculty will address questions and issues in depth about complex surgical procedures, APMs and MIPS, practice management, and more.
