Product Description

Make 2019 the Year Your Office Maximizes Revenue—and Minimizes Claims Errors


If your office regularly suffers from claims denials due to coding issues or lack of medical necessity, you’re not alone. Whether you’re an in-network or out-of-network provider, there is something you can do to recoup.

Join Thomas J. Force in this how-to session to learn to draft an appeal letter that will get results. The key, of course, is to understand why your claim was denied in the first place, so that you can provide the necessary evidence to demonstrate your right to payment.

As an attorney and owner of a medical billing company for many years, Force comes equipped to deliver several real-world methods that do (and don’t) work to recapture payment after an initial denial. Force will also teach you to interpret plan terms and Explanation of Benefits documents.

You’ll walk away with the tools you need to understand why a claim was denied and then collect and submit the documentation required to make a successful appeal. Force will explain how and when to make a second appeal, if necessary—and how to appeal not just no-pay claims but low-pay claims as well.
