2017 Medicare/Coding Webinar

Tuesday & Wednesday, March 28 and 29, 2017
Featuring KSEPS' Coding Consultant Joy Newby

 

Once again from popular demand, KSEPS is pleased to offer a new format for our annual Coding and Medicare Workshops. . . a LIVE webinar!  Not only do you not have to drive to the meeting site, but you can have as many people at your location watch for one registration.  This will save you money and offers the opportunity for more members of your staff to benefit from the critical information shared during the seminar.

Here's how it works --

  • The complete Coding and Medicare workshop material will be presented, but it will be split into two sessions of 2 hours each.
    • Session 1 will be on Tuesday afternoon, March 28 from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m.
    • Session 2 will be on Wednesday morning, March 29 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
  • We will record each session.  If you register for the live webinar, you can request the DVD of the recording after the live sessions are presented for a nominal additional charge.
  • If you cannot attend the live webinar, you can purchase just the recording for the same price as if you attended "live."
  • During the live sessions, you will be able to ask questions of Joy Newby as the session progresses.  Realizing that some of you look forward to the opportunity to discuss issues specific to your practice, we'll have a means for you to submit those questions so Joy can respond directly to you after the webinar.

Be sure to have your CPT coding manual handy.
