Plastic Surgery Coding Workshop February 27, 2021 | 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM CST

Coding Changes are Here for 2021

The redesigned 2021 Plastic Surgery Coding Workshop is a comprehensive virtual learning program featuring a one-day live interactive virtual meeting focused on the revised Evaluation and Management (E&M) guidelines and the new breast codes for 2021, packaged with the 2021 Advanced Coding e-learning modules* for study and review at your convenience. These will be available one month prior to the workshop, with continued access to the online modules on ASPS EdNet after the live event.

This blended instruction allows the newest coding professionals and those with more experience to learn accurate coding and implementation strategies from experts in the field while minimizing risks, costs of travel and time commitment.

This virtual meeting will not be recorded.
