Pre Recorded April 25th, 1pm EST

Pain Management and Anesthesia coding and billing has so many complexities and can be difficult due to ever changing guidelines, rules and federal regulations.

Pain management has many updates this year for both ICD-10 and CPT. The changes need to be well understood and communicated throughout the entire revenue-cycle team.
