    Surgical Orthopaedics in 2024 and Beyond

    It’s more important than ever to keep current in new and existing codes. Revenue and RVU optimization depend on surgeon and coder coding accuracy.  The 2024 AAOS Proficient Surgical Coding course sifts through all that is new and important in Orthopaedics and packs it into an intensive, fast paced day. This year's agenda covers all you need to know to code and document accurately and efficiently in 2024 and beyond.

    The course also provides in-depth and clinically relevant instruction on coding for a wide range of subspecialty procedures such as Hand, Foot & Ankle, and Joints. Real-life cases and discussions that link clinical procedures to the selection of CPT codes make this course ideal for surgeons and coding staff. Forget boring slides and a mind-numbing list of CPT codes. This course is rich with clinical scenarios and a comprehensive workbook that will become your first response coding resource.

    Insufficient documentation can result in the wrong code and potential revenue loss! The course describes why documentation is as essential as the code selected, and how to capture all potential revenue by improving your notes. We'll show you the correct way to use surgical payment modifiers so that you optimize payment. You'll leave armed with ideas and techniques for setting up systems that reduce denials and increase successful appeals.

    Is your practice as profitable as it could be? 

    If you aren’t sure, attend this workshop. It’s filled with urgent advice about how to seal up revenue leaks. Ask yourself:

    • Are my practice managers providing solid monthly reports—including detailed denial reports?
    • Do my Accounts Receivable reports separate patient-owed dollars from insurance debt?

    If not, you need this workshop. We’ve seen badly managed practices leak up to six figures from gross income.

    KZA education is based on real world consulting. We’ve taken a microscope to practices just like yours—whether you are in private practice, groups, hospital employed or in academia—and found the weak links. We’ll show you how practice profits are lost including:

    • Delays in prior authorization and denials after submission
    • Worker’s Compensation plans that pay by credit card
    • Deceptive AR reports
    • Failure to collect patient deductibles and co-pays
    • Billing companies that figure “out of sight, out of mind.”  (Sadly, they are often right.)

    No more fudging! Learn the bookkeeping details that can grow your revenue—ethically and legally. Bring key staff. We guarantee a solid return for the time and money invested.

    Is your practice as profitable as it could be? 

    If you aren’t sure, attend this workshop. It’s filled with urgent advice about how to seal up revenue leaks. Ask yourself:

    • Are my practice managers providing solid monthly reports—including detailed denial reports?
    • Do my Accounts Receivable reports separate patient-owed dollars from insurance debt?

    If not, you need this workshop. We’ve seen badly managed practices leak up to six figures from gross income.

    KZA education is based on real world consulting. We’ve taken a microscope to practices just like yours—whether you are in private practice, groups, hospital employed or in academia—and found the weak links. We’ll show you how practice profits are lost including:

    • Delays in prior authorization and denials after submission
    • Worker’s Compensation plans that pay by credit card
    • Deceptive AR reports
    • Failure to collect patient deductibles and co-pays
    • Billing companies that figure “out of sight, out of mind.”  (Sadly, they are often right.)

    No more fudging! Learn the bookkeeping details that can grow your revenue—ethically and legally. Bring key staff. We guarantee a solid return for the time and money invested.

We’ll discuss the latest in Evaluation and Management (E/M) Coding including the choice between Time and Medical Decision Making, categorizing E/M services, and specific scenarios in General Surgery and Critical Care.

    The course concludes with insights into other E/M services, such as prolonged services, reporting telehealth E/M in 2024, and the visit intensity/complexity E/M add-on code G2211. This comprehensive session aims to equip healthcare professionals with essential knowledge for effective medical management.
