AAPC Workshop
Our half-day, interactive workshop will provide personalized, in-depth instruction with hands-on application of the coming CPT® code and guideline changes.

AAPC (http://www.aapc.com), the leader in advancing the business of healthcare, will host 46 workshops across the country this December to prepare for the 300+ CPT® code changes that take effect in 2014. Trainings will cover why the codes have changed, how to apply the new codes, and what should be documented to support them. Each 4-hour workshop, complete with exercises and case studies, is worth 6 continuing education units.

“Our half-day, interactive workshop will provide personalized, in-depth instruction with hands-on application of the coming CPT® code and guideline changes,” said Raemarie Jimenez, AAPC director of product development and author of the workshop. “The workshop manual will then become a convenient quick-reference tool for attendees to use throughout 2014.”

Workshop attendees will:

  •     Learn how to apply the updates to common coding cases
  •     Identify potential coding mistakes that will impact revenue as a result of these changes
  •     Get their offices compliant ahead of the transition
  •     Review rationales for all major changes – understand the "what" and the "why"
  •     Understand how to prepare their providers for compliant documentation
  •     Receive an in-depth code change manual that explains the changes
