[Webinar] A Successful Path to ICD-10: One Year Later

On October 1, the flexibility of ICD-10 implementation ended. In addition, approximately 1,900 new ICD-10-CM codes have been proposed for 2017. Providers will now be required to code accurately to reflect the clinical documentation in as much specificity as possible. Errors may lead to delayed or denied claims, which ultimately will hurt your profit margins. CAP’s next webinar – A Successful Path to ICD-10: One Year Later – will help ensure your payments will not be interrupted. 

Date: Thursday, October 27
Time: 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Cost: Complimentary to physicians and their office staff
