Insurance companies take advantage of your administrative staff not knowing the process and deny covered procedures for reasons some can’t explain. Authorizations can delay patient care and take up hours of staff and provider time. Studies show that 78% of prior authorizations can sometimes, often, or always lead to patients abandoning a recommended treatment. Payers should not determine how patients should be cared for, this webinar training will allow your practice to take back that power and get authorizations and referrals upon the first submission.
