Spending time and resources to appeal denied claims can be taxing for a physician practice. However, appeals can not only help your practice recoup money, but can also divert auditors from honing in on problematic claims. For an auditor, if a practice is unable to show that it’s made an effort to appeal denied claims, it appears as though physicians and their staff are not aware of potential compliance issues.
It’s a fact that many denials are not valid. Whether they’re due to a simple typo on a claim or a payer’s oversight, you have the right to knock on your carrier or intermediary’s door and argue your case. Fortunately, recouping your denied payment is really quite simple — if you know the details of the appeals process.
In this session, expert speaker Barbara J. Cobuzzi, MBA, CPC, CENTC, COC, CPC-P, CPC-I, CPCO, AAPC Fellow, will help you learn each step of this effective method for securing your practice or facility’s rightful reimbursements.
