Advanced Institute for Anesthesia Billing and Practice Management

Conference Information 2022

We look forward to returning to the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for the first time since 2019. The Anesthesia Billing and Coding Boot Camp will be offered as a hybrid event, but the rest of the conference will be offered live only. 

Concerned about COVID? So are we. Check out this page to learn why we think this event will be safe to conduct live, and our backup plans for a virtual event. Still unsure? We offer a 100% refund guarantee if we are unable to conduct the meeting live. 

Full conference registration: $995 until February 1, $1095 afterward. We have applied for CME (Category I AMA PRA), CEUs (AAPC/BMSC) and AANA Class Credit, but are not allowed to advertise the number of hours until the applications are approved. We expect the number to be similar to previous years.  Full registration includes all sessions including the Anesthesia Billing and Coding Boot Camp as well as the main conference 

Anesthesia Billing and Coding Boot Camp only: just $99 for this four hour session on the basics. This is the only part of the meeting that will be offered as a hybrid event. Attend live in Las Vegas or from the comfort of your couch. A recording of the event will be available until the end of 2022 for online viewing. 

Discounts available for groups of 4 and larger! Contact us for details.
