ICD-10 Basics – 4 hours. No CEUs.
Although Congress has deferred formal implementation of the new ICD-10 coding system to the Fall of 2015, you’ll still want to be ready. In addition to new codes there are also new charting requirements that will be mandatory for insurers, and particularly important if you want to get maximum reimbursement for your billed services.
The presenter for this program is WANP President, Dr. Mona Fahoum. Dr. Mona has extensive practical and teaching experience with billing and coding and has completed certification in the new ICD-10 system. She’s designing this program specifically for naturopathic practices, so this is a unique opportunity you won’t find elsewhere.
