    Our current diagnosis system has 13,000 codes ICD-10 has over 68,000.  Once you understand this new coding you can use it to explain in greater detail WHY your patient needs treatment.

    In addition you’ll be getting instructions, samples and templates - How to write a narrative report, How to write a letter of medical necessity and best practices for your office.  Thinking about updating your progress notes for greater efficiency and better compliance? - We’ll have templates that you can make your own or use to update how you do things.

    As always Mori will be sharing the latest information about Insurance Carriers plus great tips and tricks that come from over 25 years in the business of acupuncture billing.  All with the goal of maximizing your reimbursement and helping your practice run as smoothly as possible.

    Mori West:

    Mori's billing class was really good. She sure knows how to keep you engaged in a seemingly "boring" subject. The class was quite fun! She is truly invested in your success and goes above and beyond. Mike Nam LAc

    From an acupuncture perspective, the channel systems represent the physiology of life and its essential prerequisites of bodily survival, emotional and mentalinteraction with oneself and others, and the differential development of an identity that either conforms to one's intrinsic nature or the confines of social and environment nurture.  This seminar will explore the philosophical and spiritual meaning of the channel systems to begin to unravel its mystery with the emphasis on wellness and health (rather than the usual preoccupation with disease and pathology associated with modern health-care).  Coming from the perspective that humans naturally seek balance, the course will focus on the cultivation and awareness of these channel systems with the intention of their interaction with these channels in their practice.
