Appeals are confusing. Appeals can seem impossible. Results may seem not worth the effort. In this webinar you will find useful tools and resources to understand the appeal process and how to turn your A/R around and get PAID for those claims after appeal. 

Payers have different processes, they change frequently, and we will go over the steps for the major commercial payers as well as Medicare Part B Reopening, reconsideration, and appeals processing. Understanding the processes are 90% of the battle. 

Once you understand what process is needed for your claim, our expert speaker Stephanie Thomas will show you how to write or verbalize your reason for appeal and the outcome you expect. Keywords in appeals are gold to getting good results and we will share these nuggets with our attendees.

Follow up is also key! Our speaker has created a bulletproof follow up process to be sure your claim is getting the attention it needs for proper payment. Squeaky wheel gets the grease!
