Course Description:
ACOG's Committee on Health Economics and Coding and ACOG's Executive Board believe physicians must educate themselves and their staff about appropriate coding and billing practices. 

In the world of medical billing and coding, there is nothing like billing for obstetrics services.  There are multiple components-some that are reported individually, some that are reported as part of global service, and some that are reported based on the specific circumstance.  In addition, as the delivery of obstetric care evolves, so does the reporting of those services.

This one-day course is dedicated to clarifying the principles of obstetrics billing and coding, equipping the provider and their staff to appropriately report services to a variety of payers and circumstances.  This highly interactive session will provide attendees the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills as they learn through detailed case studies.

At the end of this course, attendees should be able to:
• Differentiate between services that should be reported “globally” and services that should be independently or separately reported.
• Identify the differences between the billing/coding of “routine” and “high-risk” obstetrics.
• Accurately report ultrasound and other associated diagnostic services.
• Construct protocols to manage unique circumstances not clearly reportable through available procedure codes.
• Discuss currently developing issues in the field of obstetric care, as it influences billing/coding of those services.

Agenda Format:
Through question and answer sessions, discussions and case studies, physicians should learn how correct coding can positively affect their practice. This workshop is designed for physicians. However, if accompanied by a physician, up to five office coding staff may also attend. Once the physician has attended, his/her staff may attend alone for up to two years after the date the physician attended. Contact the Registrar for more information.
