CMS and third-party insurance payers are spending millions of dollars investigating physician billing practices and the federal government is recovering billions of dollars in healthcare fraud related settlements and judgments through the False Claims Act.  A large percentage of these recovery efforts are due to incorrect coding of claims, misunderstanding of policies, rules and regulations.  This coding course focuses on current coding and billing guidelines for services and procedures commonly performed by endocrinologists. This course will provide education and hands on activities to learn how to obtain appropriate reimbursement for the services and procedures clinicians provide patients.
