When treating diabetic patients, getting paid EVERY dollar you’re due is essential.

That means these claims are on their radar, and any missteps on your part could jet you to the top of their audit list – which is certainly NOT where you want to be.
Don’t risk it. Get the expert diabetes coding advice you need to more accurately code your claims. You’ll decrease your audit chances, and increase your ability to get accurately and ethically paid for more of the services you provide to this chronic population. Don’t wait, order today.

Presentation was very organized and well presented.
It was awesome. Really got a better understanding of DM and how it relates to other diagnoses the patient has. The sample questions were ones I found interesting. I really enjoyed it.
