Register Now for 2014 BCBSNC Regional Provider Conferences

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC)’s Strategic Provider Relationships team will be hosting regional conferences in Charlotte, Chapel Hill and Greenville in March and September this year. Please see the links below to register for a session today.

Focus on ICD-10 Readiness

This year’s conferences will focus on ICD-10 to help your practice prepare and stay on track to meet the October 1, 2014, compliance deadline.  Attending providers and their staff will receive valuable ICD-10 updates about both BCBSNC and provider readiness, related industry updates, ICD-10 timelines, implementation strategies, information about provider testing, as well as the opportunity to take part in open-forum, collaborative discussions with other providers in the community on the topic of ICD-10.  Remember, if your systems and staff aren’t ready by October 1, BCBSNC will be unable to process your claims for payment. 

Featured Speaker

Lee Ford, regulatory services manager for Physicians East, P.A. and director of the North Carolina Health Information Management Association will be our featured speaker.  Lee is an extremely active local, state and national industry expert on the topic of ICD-10 compliance.  With more than 19 years of health care and consulting experience working with providers and payers, Lee is also a frequent presenter of educational seminars on topics such as coding, reimbursement, documentation fundamentals, and operational efficiencies. 

Who Should Attend

As the focus for the 2014 regional provider conferences is specifically about ICD-10, we encourage medical practice staff (practice managers, compliance officers, administrative and billing staff) with ICD-10 implementation and/or compliance responsibilities to attend these sessions.  Please note that specific coding guidance for coders will not be part of these events.
