Product Description

Nail moderate sedation billing best practices in 1 hour!

In 2006 the AMA changed conscious sedation CPT codes to “moderate sedation” - which resulted in many carrier reimbursement policy changes. If you’re not up to speed on these changes, you could risk losing payment for these sedation services.

But you can learn all you need to know to rake in the deserved bucks in just one hour with expert Steven M. Verno, CMMC, CMMB, NREMTP, Professor of Medical Coding and Billing, Everest University. He’ll discuss every critical insurance carrier policy that specifically affects you, as well as the latest scoop from CMS.

Who should attend: Those who provide moderate conscious sedation: Pediatricians, Cardiologists, Gastroenterologists, Emergency Medicine practitioners and others, including coders and billers.
 
Join us for this valuable conference where you’ll learn:

  • The essential coding changes to moderate sedation - and what they mean for you.
