Streamline the Paperwork and Improve Your Workman’s Compensation Medical Billing


Many providers shy away from Workman’s Comp (WC) patients due to the extra paperwork, long wait time for payments and constant changes in State and Federal regulations.

You don’t have to lose revenue due to WC claim denials. It is not as labor intensive once proper protocols are in place and the process is streamlined. It is a perfect “niche” for the right practice to gain more revenue and increase their services and marketability from becoming the “Treating Provider on record”, a WC panel Provider, or a provider delivering new cutting edge services in the health industry.

In this presentation, Trish Bukauskas will alleviate any and all fears and provide simple tips on what a Workman’s Compensation insurance carrier requires and how to streamline the paperwork involved. This session will also cover Federal and State requirements in this area.

Session Highlights:

  • How to determine if a claim is approved, open or inactive.
  • How to obtain a provider number if and when one is required.
  • The different ways to appeal a claim that is denied or needs an authorization.
  • Services that require prior authorization.
  • How to get paid on unique services such as DME (Durable Medical Equipment), PT (Physical Therapy) and medications.
  • Understand the 5 major reasons WC claims are denied.
  • Know why proper diagnosis coding is so important and how to determine the “compensable” diagnosis.
  • Know how to bill for multiple work injuries the same day.
  • Know what documentation is required to get the claim approved and / or paid.
  • Easy patient history forms that assist in proper evaluation of the WC patient.
  • Templates on how to train your providers for follow up documentation.
  • How to bill or check claim status “electronically” for Federal and some State W/C carriers.
  • Top 5 reasons a WC bill is returned.
