Product Description

See what you can do before you even have to plan for an appeal.

Even if you eventually prevail in an appeal, denials cost your practice staffing time and limit your practice’s cash-in-hand. But your practice can design a system that involves everyone from your front desk, to your clinicians, to your back office. And if you work together, you can stop denials in their tracks.

In this 90-minute session, billing and reimbursement guru Barbara J. Cobuzzi, MBA, CPC-OTO, CPC-H, CPC-P, CPC-I, CHCC, reveals Medicare’s most common reasons for denying claims so you don’t have to spend as much time puzzling over EOBs. She’ll also show you how to find out your local carrier’s top reasons for Medicare denials. Remember, if you can design a process that stops the most common denials, you’ll have more time to appeal the denials based on more unusual reasons.

In this jam-packed session you’ll learn:

  • Uncover software glitches that are triggering denials--and learn how to fix them.
  • Discover how successful practices audit for--and plug--leaks in the Medicare billing process.
  • Implement step-by-step denials management process in your practice right after Barbara explains it to you--plus get sample checklists, tools, and forms.
  • Watch for ICD-9 coding strategies that support medical necessity--and learn where most practices make diagnosis coding mistakes.
  • Get screening services reimbursement strategies from a pro.
  • Reveal 5 non-coding related denials traps that you can fix without any coding expertise at all.
  • Tackle 11 modifier mistakes that cause denials--and learn how a little basic coding knowledge can remedy them.

And if you have lingering questions, you can ask Barbara directly during the interactive Q&A!
