UPCOMING AMS SEMINARS AND WEBINARS
Webinar: New Overtime Rules: How to Prepare and Comply
Wednesday, August 10, 2016 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The U.S. Department of Labor has issued its long awaited revised overtime regulations to the Fair Labor Standards Act. The revisions reflect a significant change in how employers can determine which employees are exempt and which employees will now be entitled to overtime. One thing that won’t change, failure to be in compliance with the new requirements when they take effect can result in significant liability for an employer. The last major revisions were issued in 2004 and employers have been operating under these standards since then.
- Analysis of the new FLSA overtime rule
- When the rule will take effect and what you should be doing to prepare for it
- How employers should implement the changes to help protect them from liability for misclassification of employees.
- Changes to the salary level test for determining who is an exempt employee.
- Why an employer might consider reclassification of an employee from exempt to hourly.
- Review of the duties tests for determining who qualifies as an exempt employee.

Seminar: E & M Coding Made Easy
Tuesday, August 16, 2016 8:30 am - Monday, July 25, 2016 4:30 pm
North Little Rock
In the last decade, billing for higher-level E&M codes has increased vastly, drawing the attention of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General (OIG). A medical records review found that Medicare inappropriately paid some $6.7 billion for incorrectly coded claims and those lacking proper documentation. Not surprisingly, OIG is calling on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to use all the tools at its disposal to identify and eliminate improper payments associated with E&M services.
This medical auditing E&M training program will provide you everything you need to be an E&M auditing pro! Designed as a one day course, our National Alliance of Medical Auditing Specialists (NAMAS) instructor will dig deep into all areas of E&M auditing, breaking down each section individually and even giving you a chance to apply what you’ve learned to case studies.
This training is designed for professional coders in all specialties that provide E&M services. Physicians with a basic understanding of E&M Coding will also benefit from this training.
CEUs: This workshop is approved by the AACP for 8.0 CEUs. CEUs can be split between Core A and all specialties except CASCC, CIRCC and CPCO for continuing education units.
