The SVS Coding & Reimbursement Workshop is an intensive program designed to provide a comprehensive review of current coding and reimbursement information, including critical updates vital to anyone who wants to become an expert in vascular coding. 

(Optional) Half-day E/M Coding Workshop*

The SVS Evaluation and Management (E/M) Coding Workshop is designed to support vascular surgeons and their staff to maintain knowledge and competence for one of the most challenging areas for coders. This workshop will focus on coding and documentation rules for choosing a correct E/M category and level of service, specifically for the vascular surgeon.
