Continuing Education – Beyond the Basics Coding and Billing Conference

To better serve our patients, Dr. Michael Lee and the entire staff of the Cincinnati Center for Corrective Jaw Surgery are always looking for advanced education and training opportunities.

This November, Jen Carroll, our Financial Coordinator, attended Beyond the Basics Coding and Billing Conference at the Hyatt Coconut Point Resort in Bonita Springs, Florida. Sponsored by the AAOMS (American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons), the hands-on conference provided Jen with the necessary tools to achieve coding compliance and attain optimal reimbursement while preventing fraud and abuse.

In addition to OMS-specific procedural coding, new content covered healthcare reform initiatives stemming from the Affordable Care Act, state insurance laws, reimbursement issues, audit tips, medical records documentation, managed care contracts tips, fraud and abuse, and more.
