While a surgeon’s expertise is key to patient outcomes, coding and documenting the procedures are key to the surgeon’s payment and reimbursement.
And, when it comes to billing and coding, a twist of an adage applies: What you don’t know can definitely hurt you financially.
One solution? Make plans today to attend the 2021 SVS Billing and Coding Reimbursement Workshop. This year’s iteration is set for Sunday and Monday, Dec. 5 and 6, at the OLC Education and Conference Center in Rosemont, Illinois. The building is minutes from O’Hare International Airport and houses the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) headquarters office, located at 9400 W. Higgins Road, Suite 100.
The workshop kicks off with an optional workshop, “E&M (Evaluation and Management) Coding for Vascular Surgeons,” from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Dec. 5. Faculty is Teri Romano, BSN, a coding and reimbursement specialist with KarenZupko & Associates and longtime SVS consultant for the Coding and Reimbursement Workshop.
The main workshop will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Dec. 5, and from 7:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Dec. 6. Romano will be joined by SVS members and longtime coding course faculty Sean P. Roddy, MD, Sunita Srivastava, MD, and Robert M. Zwolak, MD.
Registration will open in early September. For more information, visit vascular.org/Coding21.
