Become one of the first to earn your CEMA-O!

The Certified Evaluation & Management Auditor - Orthopaedics (CEMA-O) is the ONLY E&M certification specific to orthopaedics. Earning this credential will help you:

  • Save your practice annual auditing fees;
  • Improve patient satisfaction via efficient, quick, and correct coding; and
  • Improve billing & coding processes.

This comprehensive one-day program will prepare you to pass the CEMA-O exam and become an E&M auditing pro. 

AAOE has partnered with The National Alliance of Medical Auditing Specialists (NAMAS) to dig deep into all areas of E&M auditing, by breaking down each section to give you a solid understanding, along with the real skills you need to make an immediate impact once back in the office. 

If your schedule allows, plan to attend the AAOE Annual Conference April 14-17 AND participate in the CEMA-O boot camp for just $595! Email to register for both.
