An Average of 18% of All Claims Were Denied in 2006!
Claim denials by managed care organizations continue to plague healthcare providers, according to a new survey by the Managed Care Information Center. Itís one of the leading problems confronting both hospitals and physicians.
Ineffective claim processing systems, system interface issues, eligibility issues, medical necessity, poor quality control, insufficient contract language, lack of training, and coding errors are among the myriad reasons for the high rate of payor denials.
But experts believe as much as 90 percent of claim denials may be preventable!
Learn how to prevent claim denials before they happen to obtain the revenue your organization is entitled to!
Join Healthcare Reimbursement Monitor and three reimbursement experts to find out how to submit approvable claims in "Denials Prevention: Management Strategies, Best Practices, and Procedures to Optimize Reimbursement and Improve Cash Flow," a 90-minute audio conference that took place in September 2007.
