Denials can bleed your organization dry.

A recent independent Kaiser Family Foundation survey found that insurers deny, on average, 18% of all claims. And for some private insurers, that number is far higher.

How can you make your organization a hard target and get back in black? By understanding the root causes of denials, your vulnerabilities, and the latest payer tactics. And stopping the bleeding at its source.

Join Ken Macklem, RHIT, CCS, VP of Coding and Managed Services, on Thursday, Oct. 26, from 1-2 p.m. EST for this free 60-minute webinar. Ken brings to bear more than 35 years of varied experience in healthcare, including denials management.

You’ll leave with a firm grasp of where your organization’s vulnerabilities lie, an understanding of the latest payer tactics for denying healthcare claims, and with proven strategies for denials mitigation and prevention.
