Medtrade Spring: Questions & answers

Tuesday, January 31, 2006

LAS VEGAS - Got a burning question about staying ahead of the curve in HME?
Well, there's a good chance you'll find answers among the 70 educational sessions held at Medtrade Spring, which runs March 21-23 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
"Medtrade Spring is the place to come and get answers, gain new ideas and learn how to continue serving patients in the most profitable way," said Art Ellis, Medtrade show director.
Reimbursement is still a hot topic, said Denise McClinton, Medtrade spokeswoman. One of two pre-show conference sessions on Tuesday, March 21, is "The Brutal Facts--What's Real in Reimbursement for 2006," provides a half-day of opportunities to focus on Medicare coverage criteria, documentation and working with denials.
"People are so concerned about what's happening," said McClinton "There's comfort in knowing that there are people who are in the same boat as you coming up with ways to make this work."
Education sessions begin Tuesday, March 21, at 8 a.m. and run through the show's close on Thursday, March 23. The exhibit hall is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, March 23.
Attendees looking for a break can make a splash at the Party by the Pool at the Las Vegas Hilton Wednesday, March 22, at 5:30 p.m.
One difference this year: I.D. badges will no longer be mailed in advance. Instead, attendees can pick them up on site.
