Billing and Compliance Summit 2020

October 5-7, 2020 | Orlando,FL


During this time of national crisis, we have painstakingly deliberated over the fate of our upcoming Billing and Compliance Summit, taking into consideration expert guidance and everyone’s best interests.

With those factors in mind, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Billing and Compliance Summit scheduled for October 5-7, 2020 in Orlando, Fl. While we looked forward to seeing familiar faces and providing you with an exceptional curriculum, the safety of our customers, our conference faculty, and our staff comes first.

Again, we apologize for the cancellation, but as you know, safety must always be the #1 priority.

We look forward to serving you in the future.

Be well.
