With reimbursement rules constantly changing, audits are becoming more frequent and codes are increasing in number and complexity, Codequest 2018 is an event you can’t afford to miss.

In just four hours, you will learn all-new, accurate and authoritative strategies from the leader of ophthalmic education:

  • Avoid costly mistakes that trigger audits in evolving health care markets; 
  • Audit-proof your documentation with our new payer-specific checklists for top surgical procedures; 
  • Ensure your practice gets paid for newly covered procedures and devices; 
  • Telemedicine: Learn what to consider before you participate, including risk management coverage issues;

  • Review requirements for mastering modifiers
