Coding & Billing Workshop

This event provides a comprehensive presentation of the current billing and coding environment delivered by leading experts in the field of neuromodulation. The course will highlight the importance of clinical documentation and appropriate coding, while also discussing the impact of changes in federal programs on payment. Focusing on implantable therapies there will be discussions on emerging therapies, intrathecal pump management, and pump refills as well as other salient issues in neuromodulation. The role of advocacy at the state and federal level to preserve reimbursement also will be discussed.

Target Audience

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