As any physician will attest, no one wants to leave money on the table or be accused of submitting incorrect claims. And yet every year, as neurosurgical practices are faced with the daunting task of understanding the newest coding and billing rules, many fail to educate themselves on the new guidelines. The result: lower revenue potential, increased denials and greater operating/administrative costs for the practice.

Adding to this substantial challenge is the scheduled implementation of ICD-10-CM diagnostic codes. The delayed implementation of ICD-10 underscores the magnitude of change and the amount of preparation required for an efficient transition.

To take the guesswork out of this complex system and lead reimbursement teams in a smooth and effective changeover to ICD-10, AANS will offer an expanded program for this course lineup in 2014.

The AANS Managing Coding courses are the most trusted neurosurgical coding courses available, with over 17 years of service to the neurosurgical community. Bring your reimbursement team to one of the scheduled courses in 2014 to receive the tools and support you need to be compensated appropriately and fairly for your work. With the looming ICD-10 transition, now more than ever it is critical to be knowledgeable about the current coding and billing procedures.

Who Should Attend?

Neurosurgeons, fellows and chief residents, practice managers, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, surgery schedulers, coders, billing office staff and other office staff members.

When neurosurgeons attend with their reimbursement team, this provides the highest return on investment because the entire team hears and takes the same message home to implement change.
