In Case You Missed the Memo: New Evaluation & Management Guides, Diagnosis Codes & More (Bilodeau, Nov 16 & 18, 2021)

November 16, 2021 to November 18, 2021

LIVE WEBINAR

Live webinars now satisfy California Board requirements for live CE.  See DCA Waiver DCA-20-63 for regulatory details.

Overview

Even if you don’t accept payment from an insurance carrier or send claims to insurance carriers you are still required to properly code and document the services that you provide your patients.  You should feel confident that you can pass a review from an insurance carrier, an attorney, the BCE or any other party requesting records.

This course is designed to cover the most frequently used billing codes (CPT, HCPCS and ICD-10) used in many Chiropractic offices throughout the United States and to produce “clean claims” so that you and your patients don’t experience delays and claims are processed correctly the first time.
