Focus on Revenue Cycle & Appeals
This webinar is co-presented by two industry experts in the fields of revenue cycle and appeals. Audit findings can occur for many reasons and are often the result of an error or application of the incorrect authoritative rule(s). This presentation will delve into the fine points beyond just correct coding and billing including commonly overlooked areas that are frequently beneficial to handling appeals and further details that can be directly applied to your practice.

The objectives we will be covering include:

- Learn how and why provider contracts are important.
- Learn where to look for authoritative sources.
- Understand the technical aspects of audits which can be pivotal in the outcome.
- Learn how to handle appeals in both the written form and at a live payor hearing (e.g., ALJ, SIU, Payment Integrity).
