Webinar • Thursday, November 17, 2016 • 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET

A complete revision of moderate sedation rules will impact coding and reimbursement for more than 400 services across multiple specialties starting Jan. 1. These services and payments are being unbundled from hundreds of services that CPT currently describes as procedures that include “conscious sedation as an inherent part of providing the procedure.” Because CPT is making the change, it will impact your payments from both private payers and Medicare.

Don’t lose out on revenue because you don’t know when and how to report the new moderate sedation codes. Join billing, coding and compliance expert Devona Slater as she clues you in about new codes, new rules and new payments for moderate sedation services in 2017.
