Product Description

80% of Denials Aren’t Disputed—Don’t Leave Money on the Table


Sometimes claims are processed and reimbursed seamlessly, but other times claim lines or entire claims are denied, leaving your practice’s records in a mess—and thousands of dollars outstanding. An estimated 80 percent of denials are never disputed, and that’s a huge mistake. Streamlining the denial process will increase your orthopedic office’s revenue and reduce headaches down the road.

Join billing expert Lynn Anderanin in this information-packed webinar as she shows you what to do when an orthopedic denial arrives in your office—and what you can do in the future to reduce their occurrence. Anderanin will walk you through the all the steps, from receiving to processing denials, so you can achieve positive outcomes instead of negative ones. The skills Anderanin presents are useful in any specialty, but she’ll make a special point to focus on denials common to orthopedics practices.

After attending this instructive session, you will understand the denial and remark codes that insurance companies use to deny your claims. Once you know why insurance carriers are denying something, you’ll then have the tools you need to effectively dispute denials and recoup payment. Anderanin will equip you with sample appeals letters, references useful for defeating denials, and helpful modifiers. Put an end to orthopedics claims denials today!
