    Nephrology Coding & Billing Seminars

    Navigating nephrology coding and billing can be quite complex and requires an in-depth understanding of federal guidelines and requirements, as well as variations in local carrier coverage determinations (LCDs). RPA offers these nephrology unique seminars to equip you with a greater understanding which CPT codes to use for various scenarios and how to transition from ICD-9 to diagnosis coding to ICD-10.

    With the latest updates showing Hurricane Matthew shifting west, Palm Beach County is becoming more of a target for the Category 3 storm according to latest news reports. With this new development, RPA has decided to cancel the Fundamentals of Nephrology Coding and Billing Seminar scheduled for Saturday, October 8th (previously scheduled for Friday, October 7). The safety of our staff, speakers and attendees is our primary concern.

    As a result, registered attendees have the following options concerning their registration fee:

    1) Apply the registration fee to a future RPA coding and billing seminar
    2) Use the registration fee to take the online coding and billing seminar
    3) Request a full refund

    Please notify us by email at meeting@renamd.org, regarding how you wish RPA to apply your registration fee. We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding and support of our program.

    The decision regarding the remainder of the Florida Society of Nephrology (FSN) program is still pending and you will be notified separately by the FSN staff regarding plans for that program.

    If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the RPA office at 301-468-3515 or rpa@renalmd.org.

    Thank you.
