Product Description

Best Practices for OON Providers to Increase Reimbursements and Appeal Claims Effectively


Many out-of-network (OON) providers today wish they had a business degree to go with their medical one. The increasing cost of treatments and procedures coupled with reduced reimbursements from insurance companies—as well as Medicare and Medicaid—are putting a major squeeze on many practices, bringing the question: What can I do to stop this significant reduction of revenue?

To increase your chances of getting paid accurately as an OON provider, it is vital that you implement some best practices before, during, and after providing services. Once you have implemented them, you need to be aware of how to appeal claims timely and to the proper authority. Not being aware of these best practices will severely limit your ability to contest denied and under-reimbursed claims and optimize payments in the current climate.

Join this informative webinar with expert speaker Thomas J. Force, Esq. to get a comprehensive overview of what an OON provider needs to be doing for proper reimbursement and appeal success. Get strategies and techniques that will prepare you to treat OON patients while maximizing reimbursements and properly appealing denied and under-reimbursed claims. Also, get a complete list of patient forms that are essential and learn about current best practices in detail.
