Get Foolproof Coding Techniques and Tips to Ensure Payments for Multiple Urological Procedures

Join expert speaker Michael A. Ferragamo Jr., MD, FACS, renowned urology coding and reimbursement consultant, in this 90-minute session to learn the coding concepts noted above to enable correct coding and billing and ensure entitled payments.
