Product Description

Tackle your toughest healthcare payment challenges in 90 minutes.

Just when you think you have a handle on healthcare payment systems, a slew of new questions arise. For example, “we provided the service, so why does someone else get paid?” “Why can’t we have these services provided under arrangement?” “What is the DRG transfer rule?” And the list only gets longer as you dig deeper.

If you’ve learned the basics about healthcare payment systems and are ready to take the next step, this is the conference for you. Join expert speaker Duane C. Abbey, PhD, CFP, for this 90-minute audioconference where you’ll navigate the trickiest payment system interfaces and the rules that go with them. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of what you must do to get paid … and keep the reimbursement smoothly flowing.
