Product Description

What you don't know about ERISA could be costing your practice big bucks. Learn these expert tips and boost your claims payment success. 

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is virtually unknown to many healthcare providers, billers and practice managers. And yet, this little-understood law is responsible for millions of lost dollars in claim denials.

Join Steve Verno, CMBS, CMSCS, CEMCS, CPM-MCS for this in-depth look at ERISA. You'll learn the basics of this law, since the law is more defined in Healthcare Reform and it may have jurisdiction over many of your patient's healthcare benefits and the appeals of their benefit denials. (Stay tuned for our ERISA Appeals seminar in 2011.)

ERISA event highlights include:

  • What exactly is ERISA and how long has it been around? You'll get the full story …
  • How can you identify an ERISA health benefit plan? And once you know, how do you handle it differently?
  • How can ERISA help you fight incorrect claims payments? Learn the sections of the law that will boost your success rate.
  • Who is exempt from ERISA? And who isn't?
  • What are your rights with ERISA? As a patient, biller or provider, you need to know.
  • What are the basics of a Summary Plan Description (SPD)? You need to know from the very start.
  • PLUS: Stop the intimidation! Learn to spot when an HMO is using both State Law and ERISA to bully you, and which has jurisdiction.
