    • Coding Update & Reimbursement Strategies will ensure that you maximize reimbursements at your center by preparing your ASC for the coding and billing changes coming in 2019.
    • ASC Management Essentials (new in 2019) will examine the best ways for ASCs to remain compliant and in control of changes this new year.
