Strategies to Reduce Medicare Billing Errors

March 17

Avoid Medicare billing errors and learn how to review rejections and denials.

Learn strategies to reduce Medicare billing errors which can apply to any payer and any practice. This material will review denials, grouped by reason code, and then reviews learning processes to implement within the organization to prevent the denials in the future and improve practice efficiency. This information is beneficial for a practice owner or a manager who isn’t in the day-to-day claims filing and will help improve processes within your organization, grade staff better during annual evaluations, and improve overall cash flow while reducing audits and denials.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe the various types of errors your practice may encounter.
  • You will be able to discuss denials with staff and explain where the error originated and how to correct processes within the organization.
  • You will be able to identify errors, hopefully before they happen, by implementing a pre-billing quality review and post-billing audits to reduce denials and improve cash flow.
  • You will be able to review denials and understand areas where improvement can be made to improve collections and reduce billing errors.
