About the Webinar
For providers, the Medicare appeals backlog is a source of both frustration and financial consequence. Much of this stems from the fact that Medicare can recover an alleged overpayment shortly after a second level appeal decision is issued, even though an appeals process may still be in process. Proven strategies can help providers counter their risk of denials and lead to a favorable outcome with the Administrative Law Judge.
Join this webinar to:
- Gain insights into how to counter risks for denials
- Learn about successful strategies for appeals, including best practices from a hospital administrator and rehab medical director
- Learn how to be proactive to increase chances of a favorable outcome with Administrative Law Judges
