    GYNECOLOGY IN CHINESE MEDICINE with

    EVAN RABINOWITZ, M.Ac.

    10% discount to ASVA Members

    This new series of classes is designed to provide insight and skills to treat the common and complex issues of women’s health. Contemplating the unique aspects of female anatomy and physiology gives rise to one of the most significant specialties in Chinese Medicine, Fu Ke/Gynecology. Given that the vast majority of patients that seek out Chinese Medicine in America are women, all practitioners should develop a thorough grasp of gynecology.

    The classes cover the fundamental principles and essential applications of gynecology in contemporary practice. Each weekend also includes an optional clinical-practicum day to assist the transition from theory to practice. The clinical practicum days will give a thorough grounding in pulse diagnosis focused on gynecology.

    Each weekend may be taken individually and is open to experienced practitioners and students. Taken as a whole series, the classes will leave the practitioner with a deep understanding of the particular concerns of women's health and gain competency as a specialist in gynecological issues.

    Fundamentals of Fu Ke/Gynecology

    Weekend 2: Sept 12-13 & 14 Practicum

    Course Description:

    Insurance Billing Essentials

    Effective Oct 1, ALL providers will be required to use a new set of diagnosis codes.  These codes are MUCH more specific than the old ICD9.  For some codes you will be required to report whether this is the initial encounter for this condition as well as more specificity in general.  You’ll understand just how this works and you’ll get documentation of the typical diagnosis codes you see in your practices.
     

    In this course you will learn:

    • How to understand the ICD-10 Codes which take effect Oct 1, 2015
    • How to use the new CMS form to your advantage
    • Documentation Requirements – Give Insurance Carriers What they want
    • New VA requirements and what you need to do to treat Federal WC patients
    • Insurance Carrier updates – what’s the latest with the major carriers

    You’ll leave class understanding the whys and hows of the new codes along with “cheat sheets” of the new ICD10 codes that are considered medically necessary for acupuncturists.

    Along with the new codes is a new claim form.  You’ll learn what is absolutely necessary to include on the form, what is optional, and two letter descriptors to give the carriers more information.

    It’s all about your documentation!


    Make It a Weekend of Learning and Join Us at Grand Rounds on Saturday August 15th. 

    Time and location TBD.  4 NCCAOM PDA Pending.
