Do you think understanding Medicare and billing correctly is puzzling?
Highmark Medicare Services is presenting a Seminar to assist providers with putting the pieces all together.
These Seminars will help you gain the knowledge and billing instructions needed to solve the Medicare puzzle. This all-day event will focus on the top CERT billing errors for Part A & B providers.
Our subject matter experts will help you gather the pieces of the puzzle. Your first step in putting the puzzle together is to choose a class for each session. Each session has classes designed for both Part A & B providers.
At each session, you will receive a piece of the puzzle and at the end of the day you will receive a 6 credit Continuing Education Unit (CEU) certificate.
There is no cost for attending, but no limit to the money you’ll save with this added knowledge! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to attend CERT and Your Claims… Putting it All Together.
