AAN Practice Webinar Helps Simplify CPT Coding

February 14, 2012


Correct coding is an essential part of running a successful practice, yet Neurology Today® reported that practicing physicians lose as much as $50,000 a year due to inaccurate coding.

To help AAN neurologists improve their coding skills and get reimbursed properly for their services, the AAN is offering the webinar CPT Coding for Neurodiagnostic Procedures Made Easy,” on Tuesday, March 13, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET.

The webinar, one of a series of 10 AAN Practice Management Webinars offered both live and recorded in 2012, will be presented by Neil A. Busis, MD, FAAN, chair of the AAN’s Medical Economics and Management Committee.

The deadline to register is March 9.

During the webinar, Busis will explain significant changes in how EMGs are coded in 2012 and cover how to:

  • Code appropriately for neurodiagnostic procedures including nerve conduction studies, EEG, and chemodenervation procedures
  • Use modifiers appropriately
  • Understand which nerve conduction studies count as separate unitsĀ  and the recommendations regarding the appropriate number of EMG and nerve conduction studies used to diagnose common neuromuscular conditions
  • Avoid common coding errors

AAN members can enjoy a discounted fee of $149 for their first Practice Management Webinar and $50 for each additional webinar—a special 25–percent savings from the pricing for nonmembers.

Participants can earn 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ per webinar. Recordings of the webinars and slides will be provided free of charge for all live webinar participants.
