Education Opportunities

Registration Now Open for the Nashville Mega Workshop March 25-26
We've expanded our usual Nashville Mega workshop to two days, so you have twice the opportunity to increase your Medicare knowledge. Sessions include both DME and O&P, so you can choose courses that best fit your needs. We've also added some special bonuses! For the first time ever, we'll have booths set up with staff from Claims, Appeals, Medical Review and myCGS to answer your questions. There will be an open Q & A with one of our medical directors and your POE representatives along with presentations from partner contractors and your choice of focused case studies. The workshop comes to a close around noon on the second day, leaving you plenty of time to travel home – or maybe just an afternoon to enjoy Nashville's hospitality. For a limited time, you can take advantage of our Early Bird Special: register today and pay only $125 for both days – the price will go up to the standard $150 soon, so we hope you will take advantage of this unique deal! Visit our registration page and sign up today!
