Get Coding Tools and Information to Provide Accurate Diagnoses and Procedure Codes for Simple & Complex Pediatric Urological Surgical Procedures

Proper coding for pediatric operative procedures leads to entitled payments, compliant coding, and protection from denials of services and loss of revenue— often which are significant.

Attending this conference will provide you with the necessary coding tools and information to provide accurate diagnoses and procedure codes for all simple and complex pediatric urological surgical procedures.

Additionally, Dr. Ferragamo will present common and not so common pediatric procedures in a case-by-case format to allow each attendee to test their coding skills. He will also share tips and specific guidelines for accurate coding.
