Join us on Sept 17-18 for an Encore Edition of Virtual ADCES20

Sep 02, 2020

As many of you know, we experienced an extensive system-wide outage during Virtual ADCES20 which prevented attendees from accessing the conference during the first two days. The server outage was extensive and affected at least another 10 conferences. When this happened, we promised to make it up to you, and we are ready to do just that! 

Please join us on Thursday evening, September 17 and Friday morning, September 18 for an encore edition of Virtual ADCES20. We will feature live chats with presenters from some of the sessions that were affected by the system outage. You will also have another opportunity to get your products questions answered live by exhibitors in the exhibit hall. In addition, we’ve added four new CE sessions worth an additional 3.5 CE. To find out more details or to register*, visit

Check out the four new CE sessions!

1. Navigating COVID-19-Related Changes to Telehealth Rules and Reimbursement 

Reimbursement expert, Patty Telgener, and ADCES director of advocacy, Kate Thomas, will pair up to give us an overview of reimbursement as it relates to telehealth. They will review what you need to know regarding telehealth coding and billing, and address billing considerations for Medicare CGM and remote physiologic monitoring. 

 2. Three-Minute Psychosocial Interventions

Pharmacist and diabetes care and education specialist, Nancy D’Hondt, and founder and director of the Center for Diabetes and Mental Health, Mark Heyman, will explore the psychosocial side of diabetes care.
