Description

Ophthalmologists receive no formal education during residency and training in regard to coding and billing, and thus are left vulnerable to audits and poor coding and billing performance. In this age of regulatory roadblocks, Codequest will steer ophthalmologists through the complex maze of federal and commercial payers’ rules, arriving at solutions for appropriately maximizing reimbursements and preparing practices for the inevitable audit scenario. Attendees will acquire valuable insights for protecting their practices which will ultimately enhance patient care. There will be an extra focus on core competencies and fundamentals.
