Learn to Optimize your Claim Denial Management Process and Improve your Revenue Cycle!

One of the common functions in the medical revenue cycle for practices is adjudicating denials received from the insurance companies. Sometimes procedures or services are denied because they have been coded or billed incorrectly or in error, but it's not uncommon that insurance companies will also deny claims in error. Whether the claim or the insurance company is in error contacting the insurance company in a timely manner is critical to ensure providers are reimbursed for services and procedures that were performed. Join us for this information-packed webinar by industry veteran speaker Lynn M. Anderanin, CPC, CPPM, CPMA, CPC-I, COSC, and understand the insurance companies’ rules and guidelines and where to find them when reviewing claim denials.  

During the webinar, Lynn will review the denial and remark codes of the most common denials and where these can be found as well as common claims edits that also code denials. Lynn will walk through setting up a proven denials management process that includes recognizing trends in denials that can assist in seeing policy or coding changes that need to be implemented.
