Product Description

Ensure Your Practice Isn't Losing Money, By Honing Your Denials Management Skills.

In today’s economy, every dollar matters. It feel like you have to fight for the reimbursement you deserve. Every member of a urology practice plays a part — do you know yours? To keep your practice running, you have to keep the money flowing at a steady rate, which means quickly and properly working through the appeals process.  

In this 60-minutes session with expert speaker Leesa A. Israel, BA, CPC, CUC, CMBS, you’ll not only learn the top denials urology practices face, but also know how to avoid them. Clean up your claims from minute one with the tips you’ll learn in this audio conference. But every practice sees denials. For denials that can/can’t be avoided, you’ll find out how to tackle the challenge, and know when to appeal and when not to. Leesa will give you the tips, tricks, and tools to ensure that you get your denials paid.
