Commercial and government payers continue to advance programs and policies that impact laboratory operations and financials. If your lab is to adjust to new payer approaches, it is important that you stay informed of the latest trends.

This 1-hour program, including an interactive Q&A session, will help you successfully prepare for audits and protect your reimbursement!

• How to respond to payer investigations and audits, including details on identification, protocols, infrastructure to capture, identify, route and respond in a timely manner (i.e., enterprise content management)
