Gain Confidence and Increase Profitability

The Only Live ASPS Plastic Surgery Coding Workshop in 2020

Accurate coding adds up to timely reimbursements and greater profitability for your practice – it's as simple as that. But accurate coding is complicated, and no matter how much coding experience you have, there's always more to learn.

Stay ahead of the curve and plan to join us in New Orleans for the only live ASPS Coding Workshop offered in 2020. Taking place March 13-14, 2020, this uniquely interactive, comprehensive course focuses on case-based instruction of coding standards and delves into the challenges often associated with insurance reimbursement.

The Coding Workshop combines the knowledge of our member surgeons, medical directors, veteran professional coders and our Coding and Payment Committee – so whether you're the primary coding specialist in your practice, a member of the clinical team or a plastic surgeon, you'll learn relevant plastic surgery coding techniques, get your questions answered and come away with greater coding knowledge and confidence.
