Compliance Symposium/Capitol Hill Day

Join us in September 2019 for two events in our nation's capital for two days of education and advocacy. Our first ever Compliance Symposium will provide practice executives and their staffs with education surrounding the compliance needs of a 21st century orthopedic practice. Our third annual Capitol Hill Day will bring practice executives, their staffs, and physicians face-to-face with America's policymakers and advocate for change to the Medicare program.

 September 9, 2019 September 10, 2019

Remaining in compliance with healthcare policy can be a daunting task. The rules are frequently changing and it can drive anyone crazy. Join us for a one-day symposium covering healthcare compliance with prominent regulatory and health law experts. This symposium will focus on updates to the rules governing the Medicare program including incident-to billing, value-based reimbursement, physical therapist MIPS reporting, and other topics that impact practice workflows.

Registration is only $249 per person. Hurry, the price increases to $349 on August 15, 2019!

We impact the health and wellness of millions of Americans each year. Join our orthopedic peers from practices across the country in Washington, DC this fall. AAOE is educating Members of Congress and their staff about the importance and value of the orthopedic community.

Share your perspectives. Meet and talk with elected officials and federal staffers about the opportunities and challenges you face in your practice.

  • You don't have to be an experienced advocate to participate!
  • Just share your story and the stories of others in the orthopedic community.
  • AAOE will provide you with key talking points and training. We'll help ensure your visit is successful!
  • Appointments with Congressional members and staff will be arranged for you.

Make a positive impact on the profession and your patients. Registration is free and open to anyone working in a musculoskeletal organization.

This year, we'll be advocating for:

  • Increased DXA reimbursements in a physician office;
  • Delaying Medicare's upcoming Appropriate Use Criteria Program;
  • Preserving the ability of providers to negotiate and contract with insurers; and,
  • Real time Medicare Advantage prior authorizations.*
