virtual conference logo 2019

The National Government Services Provider Outreach and Education Team will be holding our latest bi-annual virtual conference on Tuesday, 5/7/2019 and Wednesday, 5/8/2019. This two full-day virtual conference will offer a variety of Part A, Part B, FQHC and self-service 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 will be your opportunity to get the latest Medicare education from our POE team AND ask your questions immediately following.

Each regular A and B session, including Electronic Attachments, will be awarded 1.5 MUCs through Medicare University. Since a MAC is presenting this information, each session will also be eligible to receive 1.5 CEUs with the AAPC if you are a CPC. The self-service session will be worth 1 MUC and CEU. 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.
