AAPC will host its fourth workshop of 2010 in October. The topic is “Making Sense of MAC E/M Rules” and will teach coders about the resources available to make confident decisions for the gray areas in E/M code selection. Navigation of the online resources available from CMS and MACs can provide the answers needed to select a code with confidence and know the E/M level will stand up to any audit.
