Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)

Wes Cleveland, JD

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) contained provisions promoting the Accountable Care Organizations which integrate care between physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers.  It is crucial physicians become familiar with issues surrounding the ACOs. 

OIG, Compliance and Coverage Issues

Way Yin, MD

As spine injection procedures have continue to be scrutinized by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and many payers, it is important for physicians to understand the compliance issues, the implications of past investigations and documentation standards to comply with the requirements of coverage policies.

CPT Coding Update and Coding Q&A

Scott Horn, DO; David O’Brien, MD

Always very popular - overview of new CPT codes; explanation of new and existing coding guidelines and coding advice to help your practice comply with the CPT requirements.  The session will allow the attendees to participate in a question and answer session with the experts who participate in the CPT editorial process.  

Value of Spine Procedures

Christopher Merifield, MD

Do you know how the value is assigned to each spine intervention procedure?  This session will provide information on how procedures are valued, what components are considered, how procedures are selected for revaluation and what ISIS is doing in this area and how practitioners can participate.

The Practice Management Pre-Conference Session requires a separate registration.
