Product Description

Turn the Burdensome Appeals Process into a Profitable One


Let’s face it: Claims denials mean money lost and headaches gained. And the appeals process is no walk in the park. But you can ease the burden with an effective denial management workflow.

Do you maximize the revenue earned on appeal? Do you use each claims denial to pinpoint improvement areas to curb future losses? If not, now is the time for a revamp. Join healthcare billing veteran Stephanie Thomas to learn how to stop being reactive and add some proactivity to your claims denial management—for both in- and out-of-network services.

In this program, Thomas will teach you to identify and eradicate recurring claims errors that are leading to unnecessary denials for your facility. Plus, she’ll make you aware of network-specific claims mistakes that payers are sure to notice. You’ll also gain a clearer understanding of the proper use of claims review forms such as pre-authorizations and insurance verifications.

Thanks to specific examples of good (and bad) denial management work and various denial types (e.g., demographics, authorization, medical necessity, out-of-network, and others), you’ll leave this session with a better grasp of how to handle any denial situation. You’ll also be equipped to establish safeguards to limit denials and increase payment rates. Far from a generic presentation, Thomas will present the specific tools you need to improve outcomes for your practice.
