This class will provide all the materials you need to do things right.  If you are new or just getting started but have some “gaps” in understanding, this class is for you.

We’ll provide you with lots of resources such as coding cheat sheets, carrier policy bulletins, privacy practices you can use in your office. You’ll learn how to verify patient benefits as well as best office practices for taking insurance.

Understand what is involved with network participation and the advantages and disadvantages for going “in-network” with a carrier.

You’ll learn how to submit claims electronically, how to re-file or resubmit claims if you made a mistake the first time. After taking this class you’ll have the confidence of knowing every claim you submit WILL be processed.

Throughout the class you’ll get tips and tricks from an expert in the field. Be prepared to ask questions – and get honest ethical answers as well as information you’ll use over and over again.
