HFMA Region 5’s Dixie Institute is designed to support HFMA’s commitment to providing programs that enhance the growth and development of its members. This annual conference brings together HFMA Members from 5 different states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Seth Avery, along with co-presenter Diane Story, will present “Denials in the World of ICD-10,” an informative lecture about the impact of the ICD-10 transition on the types and volumes of payer denials. Ms. Story will share her denials transition experience from her position at Roper St. Francis Healthcare. Together they will discuss practical steps to take today to prepare for this impending change.
