As a practice manager, administrator, or physician, are you confused about conflicting coding advice? Do you ever wish you knew where to look for the definitive citation about a coding issue?

The goal of this session is to assist non-coding managers to achieve maximum revenue with certain compliance through the understanding of coding rules. Participants will be able to evaluate their coding processes for areas of potential revenue and areas of compliance risk.

Practice executives do not need to be coders to ensure the success of their practice, but they do need to understand the structure of coding, the source of authoritative citations and rules, and the basic concepts to achieve maximum revenue with certain compliance.

Betsy will use this format during the session to achieve the educational goals:

1. Coding question
2. Concept
3. Citation
4. Answer

This session, in a lecture format with 20 minutes at the end for participants' questions, has a twofold strategy: to provide answers to coding questions applicable to a wide range of specialties and to supply participants with the ability to find answers to other questions they'll encounter.

Listen to Betsy Nicoletti and when you finish you'll be able to:
  • Evaluate your own practice to identify coding areas of revenue potential and areas of risk
  • Understand the structure behind coding rules and know where to find definitive, authoritative answers to your coding questions
  • Have the knowledge to supervise their coding staff and the coding systems and processes
  • And there's more! Betsy will also address these hot coding issues, so you can be an informed manager:
