  • 1.  Speaker Needed in New York February 8, 2023

    Posted 7 days ago

    Dr. Neil Halpern suggested I reach out to this group to see if you could help identify a guest speaker to attend the HANYS Critical Care Committee and discuss the coding changes for 2023 in particular to codes 99291and 99292 and what providers need to know. 

    The meeting is for 1 hour, and the discussion would certainly not have to be the entire hour. The next meeting is February 8 at 4 PM, EST, or the following month, March 8, 4 PM EST would also work.  Thank you for considering this request. Please email me directly if you are interested in this speaking opportunity.

    Best, Maria

    Thanks.  I have spoken at HANYS before.  If this is to be virtual, I think Piyush would be great.
    Best,
