membership-servicesYou deserve the best representation. LAEPS is here to represent you, your practice, and your patients in the legislative and regulatory arena. The LAEPS Legislative Committee strives to defeat legislation that is potential harmful to your patients and profession while promoting legislation that will improve the overall health of Louisiana citizens. LAEPS continues to fight to strengthen the voice of ophthalmology in Louisiana.

LAEPS provides educational opportunities for members and their staff. Each year, LAEPS participates in the Southeast Eye Annual Meeting with Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee called “Sand, Surf, and See”. The meeting takes place at the Grand Sandestin Hotel in Destin, Florida each July. The program includes presentations for physicians, technicians, and staff members. Continuing education credits are available. It’s the perfect mix of vacation and education!

To keep you informed regarding coding requirements, LAEPS annually sponsors CODEquest! CODEquest is an ophthalmic coding course for both physicians and staff members. Your insurance and coding staff will learn the latest Louisiana specific coding updates. The seminar will also grant CME credits for physicians who attend.

Members receive updates and important information in multiple ways. LAEPS works to keep members informed on up to date information and upcoming activities and events. Members receive email alerts and notifications; an electronic newsletter, and access to the members only log-in section of the LAEPS website.
During the legislative session, members will receive updates regularly on the processes and outcomes of important pieces of legislation.
