Product Description

Prepare Your Staff to Play Significant Roles Post ICD-10 Implementation and Avoid Negative Impact on Revenue

A lot of time has been spent on ICD-10 implementation – however, the work doesn’t stop on implementation day. Post implementation, it will be important to focus on current issues that may arise as the result of implementation and any trends that may have been recognized in the first few weeks.

Join this conference by expert speaker Lynn Anderanin CPC, CPC-I, COSC, to review the many affects of ICD-10 implementation – from the time it is taking in the office to bill the claims to efficiency for adjudicating denials on claims related to ICD-10 issues. You will also learn to handle new situations with workflow, software systems, or insurance denials.

Every office is expected to see some dip in productivity and revenue post ICD-10 implementation. This session will help you minimize these effects by taking actions that are under your control in your office. Also, you will get guidance on creating a plan for possible issues that may crop up due to claims from insurance carriers in pending or denied claim forms, and how your office staff can handle these quickly and smartly as possible.

Session Highlights:

  • Reviewing the issues that may possibly be caused by ICD-10 – Know what is seen today in claims processing for insurance organizations and understand the hurdles which arise due to insurance carriers’ denial of claims.
  • Planning for coding and billing productivity decreases and preparing for them – Understand what you can do right now to speed up the coding process when productivity has been slowed due to changes in coding.
  • Creating a plan for handling issues to utilize knowledge and experience of staff – Make sure that all staffs are used in different places according to their knowledge and experiences so that their potential is utilized properly.
  • Making a plan for denial tracking and processing – There are many offices today which don’t currently have means for tracking denials in ICD 10. The increased denial potential is important so that plans are in place by which you can work through them quickly.
