In this 60-minute event with Melanie Witt you will learn the reasons for most denials and tips on how to avoid them as much as possible. For those denials that cannot be avoided, but for which an appeal is possible, you will get advice on how to approach each type of denial, and what tools you can use to put your best foot forward with the payer.
Take a look at what’s covered:
Who should attend? Coders, billers, practice managers, physicians, non-physician practitioners
