Conference Materials (Password Required)

The Global Surgical Package has been around for many years in the CPT book. In 1992 when CMS introduced the Resource-Based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS) the concept of global surgery was significantly changed for services reported to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), The AMA and CMS continue to have different concepts related to the surgical package. If you are relatively new to coding for surgical services this program will give you a solid foundation for reporting surgical services. If you have been reporting surgical services for several years this program will provide a good review of the global surgical concepts. It may even refresh some concepts that have been forgotten over time.
