Coding Fundamentals for MFMs
One of the SMFM’s missions is career and practice support, and a large component of this is proper billing and coding practices. Coding is often an overlooked arena during fellowship training, as the focus is on research and clinical care. However, once physicians complete fellowship and start practice, they realize that coding and billing drive practice and organizational sustainability. Practices cannot provide high-risk care without optimizing their payments and reimbursements. Given that there is no formal training in fellowship regarding practice management, this course serves as an introduction to basic coding concepts. It’s an ideal course for new MFM attendings or for those who want a refresher course on coding basics.
