In this webinar you’ll learn key billing/collection strategies your lab can
implement immediately to maximize the dollars you collect from payers!

Do you have a firm grasp of how and why payers are processing your lab test claims differently? Every lab that is serious about filing clean claims and getting faster payment knows that a clear understanding of the coding, billing, and collection changes that have descended upon the lab industry is crucial!

Indeed, government and private payers have stacked the deck against clinical labs and pathology groups by implementing myriad changes in coverage guidelines and reimbursement. The fact that there have been so many changes in how labs must code, bill, and collect during 2015 makes it imperative that labs be informed, and prepared.

How do you get quickly up to speed on the specifics, and what you need to do to ensure fair and accurate payment this year? For authoritative answers, register for “Responding to Tougher Payer Requirements for Lab Claims: Steps Your Lab Can Take to Boost Collections with Clean Claims” taking place Thursday, May 28, 2015 at 1:00 PM EDT.

During this webinar, part one of a two-part series, you will be tapping the knowledge and expertise of the team of Douglas Wussow and Patrick Prescott, both of the Rhodes Group in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Doug and Patrick bring to the table a strong and successful history of helping labs implement best practices, and improving their results with more efficient processes.

This timely forum will afford them the opportunity to provide you with an essential toolkit that will prepare your lab leadership and billing/collection managers with the crucial skills needed to submit claims more efficiently and effectively, and thus effect more timely payments for your lab.

Just a sampling of the insights and perspective you’ll gain
during this information-packed 90-minute webinar:

  • Benchmarking Revenue Cycle Management with key metrics. Establishing and implementing key metrics in your RCM translates to improved collections results. Wussow and Prescott will provide examples of the performance indicators you should be benchmarking, educate you on how to implement these benchmarks, and inform you on acceptable ranges of outcomes.
  • Mitigating patient ineligibility as the leading cause of denied claims. You will learn more about the primary influencers of patient eligibility (and why you might not be getting paid), the optimal time to check patient eligibility, and how to better manage the costs of eligibility checking.
  • Top reasons why diagnosis coding is the second leading cause of denied claims. You’ll not only learn new and revealing reasons why diagnosis coding causes denial, you’ll also come away from the webinar with successful methods to counter denials, and how to avoid the pitfalls of denied claims in the first place.
  • How to adapt and respond to private payers adopting Medicare-like regulations. As you know, non-Medicare payers have begun to adopt more stringent, and more ‘Medicare-like’ regulations. Wussow and Prescott will share strategies you can use to effectively weave your way through the dizzying maze of new regulations.
  • And much more—including a discussion about how to avoid PECOS denials, tips on how to increase efficiency by putting automated processes in place, plus an enlightening case study on how a progressive regional laboratory was able to maximize their collection rate from payers.
