October 17, 2012


To help neurologists receive proper reimbursement for stroke and critical care, the AAN urges doctors and practice managers to attend “Coding Accurately for Stroke and Critical Care,” an AAN Practice Management Webinar offered online on Tuesday, November 6, at 12:00 p.m. ET. Registration is online only, and the deadline to register is Monday, November 5.


Presenter Dawn O. Kleindorfer, MD, a member of the AAN’s Section on Stroke and Vascular Neurology, will help participants:

  • Properly code the most common outpatient and inpatient visits and acute stroke interventions
  • Determine appropriate ICD diagnosis codes for stroke
  • Structure documentation to comply with federal standards of patient encounters
  • Analyze the reimbursement for CPT codes for stroke and critical care

This is the last live practice management webinar scheduled for 2012; however the entire 2012 series is available for download online. The discounted cost for members to participate in the webinars is $149 for the first and $50 for each additional webinar—a special 25–percent savings from the pricing for nonmembers.
