Having a claim denied is scary. Whether they’re due to a payer’s oversight or a typo, medical claims may be denied for a number of reason. It’s been said that 30% denials are not valid. Fortunately, practices have the right to get the insurance company to reverse its decision. Under the Affordable Care Act the right to appeal a denied claim has been expanded. These days an insurance company is required to tell why the claim was denied, and the practices have up to 6-months to appeal.
In this session “Medicare Appeals: Collect What Your Practice Really Deserves!” on Wednesday, Aug 31, 2016, expert speaker Barbara J. Cobuzzi will shed light on each step of the Appeal Process to help practices secure rightful reimbursements.
Appealing denied claims is time-consuming for a physician practice, but not appealing denials is costly in allowing non-payment, under-payment and precedent. Appeals also divert auditors from honing in on problematic claims. If a practice can’t show that they tried to appeal denied claims, it appears as if they are not aware of potential compliance issues, in front of an auditor. Luckily, recouping denied payment is really quite simple — only if the practices know the details of the appeals process. In this session, Barbara will discuss why correct coding does not always assure proper reimbursement and the common Payer Opportunities for underpayment or denial of services. She will also discuss about the easiest denials to miss, where the biggest appeals opportunities lie, elements that effect reimbursement, how to use payer appeal forms effectively, and more!
