Product Description

Improper Response To Refund Requests Can End In Paying Penalties. Here’s How You Can Protect Yourself!

Almost every healthcare provider has received a letter from a commercial insurer seeking refunds from previously paid claims. Some of these letters originate from Special Investigation Units. Regardless of whether you are in or out of network, it is imperative for the provider to understand how to respond to these demands. An insufficient response could result in a several thousand dollar recoupment as well as professional licensure suspension.

Sign up for this 60-minute session presented by expert speaker, Thomas J. Force and protect yourself from any penalties. You will get the checklist of items to include in response letters and also the references to state and federal statutes and case law.

  • What do you do when faced with a take-back demand or refund request?
  • Types of refund or take-back requests and how to deal with them.
