Current Issues of Importance to Billing Professionals Audio Conference Series - On Demand

Format:  Recorded Audio Conference Series

Dates Recorded: Oct. 10, 17, and 24, 2018

Program Summary: 

Session 1: Medicaid

As the industry begins to transition away from MLTC and back to FFS Medicaid we need to ensure our billing processes are highly efficient. The session will include best practice billing ideas, budget letters and rosters, how to handle high dollar NAMIs and the implications of long term care insurance. 

Session 2: Private Pay

Collecting from patients, whether it is for full room and board, NAMI or balance billing amounts, can be a difficult task. Facilities need to have the "right" people who are dedicated to collections efforts. Best practice collection ideas including timing of statements, electronic payments and admission agreement considerations will be discussed. Additionally, as the responsibility for collecting NAMIs is shifting back to facilities, we will review representative payee status. 

Session 3: Managed Care Data Integrity and Denial Management

Managing the revenue cycle when faced with changing payer expectations and admission patterns as well as many other factors can be very challenging. Integration of how cross functional processes can improve claims management will be explored in this session. We will also review how documentation and archiving of clinical records impact your response to payer denials and how to avoid and respond to managed care denials from prior years. 

Target Audience:  Administrators, Assistant Administrators, CFOs and billing staff of nursing homes

Speakers: Andrea Hagen, MBA, director, and Karen Donovan, RAC-CT, director of clinical operations, Beacon Solutions Group, A Division of The Bonadio Group
