New and updated content has been added to this two-day AAOMS Beyond the Basics coding workshop, which concentrates on different topics each day. Both days are necessary to achieve the maximum benefits this course has to offer. AAOMS encourages oral and maxillofacial surgeons to attend with their allied staff team. Participants must have a basic understanding of CDT, CPT, and ICD-10-CM. Basic coding knowledge or completion of the AAOMS Basic Coding course and AAOMS ICD-10-CM course is suggested before participating in this intermediate level workshop. Bring your CPT, CDT, and ICD-10-CM coding books. This is a hands-on workshop and books are not sold on site.
At the conclusion of this workshop participants should be able to:
Explain key healthcare reimbursement issues, the Correct Coding Initiative (CCI), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), an overview of health reform and fraud and abuse;
Achieve compliance through appropriate documentation for services provided (eg, use of E/M guidelines);
