“This year’s 10th Anniversary Clinical Trial Billing and Research Compliance Conference is a special one. We are celebrating 10 years as the only conference specifically dedicated to clinical
research billing with a consistent track record of growth and satisfied attendees. In an effort to bring together sites, sponsors and payers over the past few years, we have advanced the strategies of our field. This will be our best conference yet, with
an anticipated 250 attendees expected in New Orleans at the Marriott Convention Center. Along with our sponsors — Complion, Bio-Optronics, BRANY, The CITI Program, and Kelly Willenberg &
Associates — we intend to take this conference to the next level. Our goal is to bring awareness to the challenges we in billing face, and our hope is that, by working together, we can prevent incorrect billing and non-existent reimbursement.

The conference will address many topics, including the coverage analysis process, workload and budgeting, reimbursement, the Open Payments Sunshine Act, physician billing, CTMS, NCD/
LCD, appeals and denials, and much, much more. With sponsors, commercial payers, and Medicare and the Medicare contractors at the table, we can extend the collaboration between us.

2016 is a leap year, so plan to “Leap into Billing compliance” with us in February in one of my favorite cities to visit, New Orleans. There will be some jazz, jambalaya, beignets and beads in the Big Easy! I
hope you will make plans to join us!”
