The amount of energy and resources physicians and other clinical staff spend on addressing pre-authorization requests results in less time to treat patients, and needlessly drives up administrative costs for medical establishments. This is a pain point for patients, healthcare providers, and payers. A large part of claim denials occur due to the lack of up-front clarity about the guidelines and requirements – and can be avoided.
In this webinar, industry veteran Stephanie Thomas will show you how to obtain the necessary pre-authorization information on the first visit itself, while ensuring they have the best chance of being successful. She will teach you how to streamline your internal processes, tell you what exactly payers are looking for, how to identify areas of risk within the practice, how to appeal a denied authorization – and what information to send to get it overturned. You will learn how to create workflows to manage your office, your patients and your time more efficiently, and how to utilize live representatives, online portals, and forms to your advantage.
Thomas will also teach you how to work through your pre-authorization requests and improve your chances of success. You will learn how to work with payers across different avenues, discover the pros and cons of each form of contact, and understand how to organize your information systematically.
After attending this webinar, you will be able to request proper authorizations, appeal denied authorizations, improve patient satisfaction, and manage your time and your work more efficiently.
