AAPC Policies

All cancellations must be submitted in writing (email) to AAPC, and are subject to the following scale:

Cancellations received by December 15, 2017 will be granted a refund, less a $100 processing fee. If a cancellation is received between December 16, 2017 and February 23, 2018, a 50% refund will be granted. NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS will be issued after February 23, 2018.

All cancellations for hotel must be made 10 days prior to arrival date to receive a refund. Cancellations made less than 10 days prior to arrival will be charged a fee. No-shows will not receive a refund.

Appropriate attire for sessions and networking events is smart casual. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes due the amount of walking in large convention centers. Comfortable dress is encouraged, but look professional.

As a HEALTHCON attendee you may receive targeted information and marketing from event exhibitors. AAPC never discloses attendee emails or phone numbers. Exhibitors may receive pre/post conference mailing lists that contain physical addresses only. Any email received from an exhibitor would be sent through a service where AAPC provides the email, but it is not disclosed to the exhibitors.

Onsite attendees have the option to allow exhibitors to access their contact information via the lead retrieval system. When you allow an exhibitor to scan your badge this is giving them your permission to your information which may include full name, credentials, email, phone number, and physical address.
