The appeals process may be time consuming, but it’s worth every penny. Organizations responding to the American Hospital Association’s recent RACTrac survey appealed 50% of their denied claims during the first quarter of 2014. Some hospitals may choose to leave money on the table, but you don’t have to. Nearly half of hospitals responding to the survey revealed that they overturned a denial in their favor during the discussion period before a formal appeal in the first quarter.

 
Let experts Mark Michelman, MD, MBA, and Stacey Levitt, RN, MSN, CPC,  guide you through the process of making appeals determinations easy. Join us at 1 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday, August 7, for the 90-minute webcast Medicare Appeals Made Easy: A Focus on Reducing Denials. During this program the speakers will review real-world denial examples to illustrate best practices for successfully appealing claims and proactively reducing denials.
