Product Description

Collect what your practice really deserves -- Barbara will show you how

Did you know that many denials, in fact, 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.

And, fortunately, recouping your denied payment is really quite simple -- if you know the ins-and-outs of the appeals process.

Join coding and reimbursement specialist, Barbara J. Cobuzzi, in this session where you'll learn each step of this effective -- and often underused -- method for securing your practice or facility's rightful reimbursements

Here's what you will learn:

  • A fresh perspective on coding versus reimbursement.
  • Trouble understanding how the appeals process works? Barbara will simplify it and turn you into an expert
  • Scout out where the biggest appeals opportunities lie: See where you stand to collect the most for your persistence.
  • Medicare vs. private payers: Tailor your appeal based on who’s paying you.
  • 4 Pieces of must-have information when communicating with a payer.
  • 1 Key contact to hone in on when you file your appeal.
  • Get the lowdown on modifiers 59, 25 and 57... and other hot targets for appeals.
  • Make filing as easy as 1-2-3 with this handy checklist.

Who should attend? Billing managers, billers, practice managers and administrators, physicians, clinical staff, front desk staff, coders, surgical schedulers and anyone involved in the revenue cycle.
