Learn key methods to stop denials in their tracks and improve your practice profitability in this complimentary webinar

Costs in physician practices keep rising, and reimbursements don’t keep pace.  Decreasing and preventing denied claims is one strategy that pays off in increased cash flow, increased revenue and less work.  In this webinar, you will hear how to stop denials in their tracks: to assess denial rates in your practice, how to investigate the cause of the denials and how to prevent denials in the future.

At the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Describe how to measure denial rates in their practice
  • Set up a tracking mechanism to collect data on the reason for denials
  • Improve front and back office processes to prevent future denials

A denied claim means money delayed, or worse, never collected.  The practice has already incurred all of the expense to provide the service, but has not received payment.  Some payer denials are literally out of the practice’s control.  But many denials occur because of errors the practice made in the registration or verification process, because of incorrect coding, and due to claims submitted beyond the filing limit.  In some practices, no one is reviewing the clearinghouse edit report and correcting claims, leaving charges in suspension.  In some groups, an insurance denial is accepted and written off, rather than investigated and appealed.   This session will describe how to track denials, improve the work processes and measure improvement.
