Registration is Open: National Government Services December 2020 Virtual Conference

The National Government Services Provider Outreach and Education (POE) Team is holding our latest bi-annual virtual conference on Tuesday, 12/8/2020 and Wednesday, 12/9/2020. This two full-day virtual conference will offer a variety of Part A, Part B and FQHC sessions. There are no associated charges for this virtual conference and you may register for as many sessions as you’d like.

Each session will begin with a presentation, then we will address your questions. This is your opportunity to hear about the latest Medicare education from our POE team and ask your questions immediately following.

Since a Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) is presenting this information, each session will also be eligible to receive 1 Medicare University Credit (MUC) and 1 continuing education unit (CEU) with the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) per hour of education, if you are a certified professional coder (CPC). Please remember, if you will be reporting CEUs to the AAPC you will need to keep your email registration confirmation as proof of session for any future AAPC audit. If you do not have a registration confirmation in your name, you will not be able to report CEUs with the AAPC.

To register, select the link(s) below or visit the Education Calendar and scroll down to 12/8/2020 and 12/9/2020 to view and register for sessions.

Please note: All times listed are Eastern Time.”
