Why Should You Attend:-
Many providers and practices are still unsure of how this new law affects them and their patients. Some have chosen to ignore the requirements, which is a dangerous path to take. The legislation of hundreds of pages is complex and overwhelming. However, the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight and CMS has done a good job of providing resources to assist players in understanding their responsibilities.
Understanding the legislation and implementation from payers, state, and federal levels is imperative to protecting your practice from costly fines in the future. While there is a so-called “grace period” for the rollout, that is quickly expiring and the industry is already seeing audits. Educating staff, posting necessary signage, and creating and implementing internal processes must be done NOW. Are you ready?
The process of providing good faith estimates can be confusing and overwhelming. How does this work? Is this only for emergency services? What if the procedure changes? Do we have to provide an estimate for every procedure? Many questions surround this topic. Our speaker will go in-depth, with real-world examples of how to simplify this, and explain how this can be a useful tool to increase your revenue!
What happens when you don’t agree with the reimbursement for a service in an out-of-network situation? Can you bill the patient the difference? Can we appeal? Alongside this new legislation, there is a very helpful new dispute resolution process that has been proven to be successful! It's easy and well organized. This session will explain how this works and in what situations you should utilize this.
