Get Your Reimbursements Flowing With Correct Coding For Radiological Procedures Performed.

Many urologists are performing in their offices "radiological procedures". These procedures consist of CT scans as well as sonographic studies  and Doppler scans of the urinary tract.

There are new and changing radiological coding policies one must know, understand, and follow to avoid these errors.

Join now for this power packed audio event presented by expert speaker Michael A. Ferragamo, Jr., MD, FACS who'll provide the needed information, tips, and guide lines to allow the submission of clean claims for radiological services and avoid loss of entitled payments.
