When Medicare patients present with trauma related to workmen’s compensation or other third party circumstances, it is crucial that these situations are identified at the time of registration. You must take certain steps at strategic times to protect your revenue. Errors made in patient access often create a ripple effect throughout the process, resulting in the inability to secure timely payment. Don’t compromise your ability to collect these claims. Learn what steps are required and when action must be taken to support your request for a conditional payment.
Liability policies have limits to the medical coverage. Misunderstanding the steps and necessary actions will likely cost you. Timeliness and proactive measures are the keys to staying in the game. Medicare will be secondary to the liability coverage. Does your staff know how to actively pursue the correct pathways to obtain payment?
Join this session, where auditing and training expert Dorothy D. Steed will discuss the requirements for medical conditional payments, and when and how strategic steps must be taken. Be proactive and don’t let this potential revenue slip by you. Lack of training for your staff can result in revenue delays or outright loss. Medicare patients often suffer slip and fall injuries, motor vehicle accidents or other causes of injury resulting in expensive and prolonged treatment. This session will help you understand what must be done in these cases and you will learn to focus on the steps and timing.
With this session, you will be able to implement or solidify process improvements to obtain Medicare conditional payments. Most of these dollars that result in losses are due to lack of training or missing the timelines for necessary steps. Protect this potential revenue by assuring that your processes are reliable and compliant.
