The North Carolina Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons (NCSEPS) seeks to promote and enhance the practice of ophthalmology in the state in a variety of ways, including:
ADVOCACY: NCSEPS works at the state and national level to advocate on behalf of eye physicians and their patients. In addition to work at the NC General Assembly, NCSEPS staff monitor the activities of state regulatory bodies, managed care companies, and government agencies to ensure that eye physicians are treated fairly and that the quality of care for their patients is not negatively impacted. NCSEPS members are encouraged to get involved in advocacy efforts. For more information, click here.
EDUCATION: NCSEPS places a high level of importance on assisting physicians in staying abreast of the latest clinical advancements and practice management issues. The NCSEPS winter and annual meetings offer a large number of continuing medical education courses on a variety of ophthalmic topics, and the annual CodeQuest College educates ophthalmologists and their staff members on recent changes in coding, reimbursement, and compliance.
Membership in the NCSEPS is open to every ophthalmologist in North Carolina, and we invite you to become a member today. The NCSEPS is the only specialty society in the state representing ophthalmologists and is recognized as a chapter of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
