Speaker: Elizabeth Woodcock
Think your medical practice has a healthy revenue cycle? If you haven’t focused – really focused – on insurance denials, then think again. Denials might be the most underestimated and poorly understood sources of significant cash leakage from your practice’s revenue cycle.
National speaker and practice management expert Elizabeth Woodcock shows you how to dig into the causes of claim denials in your practice and drastically reduce lost revenue. She’ll show you how to:
- Assess denial patterns and discover their root causes
- Quantify the financial impact of denials
- Utilize more streamlined processes to correct and resubmit denials
- File effective appeals of denials and underpayments
- Develop strategies to prevent denials and improve staff productivity
Is this your practice? Denied claims languish for days–even weeks–before a staff member finally resubmits. Then they come back: denied again. You don’t need a complex claims denial-management system, but this work process does require your time and attention. With the cost of reworking a claim approximately $15, and perhaps more, you simply can’t afford stay on the denial merry-go-round.
In this fact-filled webinar, national speaker and practice management consultant Elizabeth Woodcock shows you how to transform your practice’s insurance billing function into a claims resolution machine. If your practice has five percent or more of its claims denied on first submission, then this informative webinar is for you.
