Find out how to take advantage of billing opportunities you may have been missing and ensure you are billing correctly. 

We offer both private member physician (for you and your staff) and general seminars.

Member physician billing seminars (for groups of five or more)

We offer private billing seminars to groups of five or more AMA member physicians and their billing teams. At least one AMA member physician must be present throughout the seminar, and there is no maximum number of attendees. Consideration will be given to smaller groups on a case-by-case basis.

Typically taking about two hours, the private seminars are tailored to your practice's specific billing needs and are available to PCNs, general practitioners and specialists.

There is no charge to AMA members for Zoom videoconference billing seminars. For in-person billing seminars, the fee is $183.75 per hour (includes GST) for AMA members.
