Product Description

Ace the Pre-Authorization Process and Be Your Office’s Approval Pro


Pre-authorizations are Billing 101 for many offices and they dictate everything from patient satisfaction to the bottom line. But while the basics may be the same, the devil is in the details, and boy, are there a lot of them. Cinch the pre-authorization process and you’ll become your office’s MVP.

Join billing and coding expert Stephanie Thomas in this valuable live audio event to uncover the basics of preauthorization and what individual insurers require. Learn what words to avoid in your pre-auth requests and what to do if your request is denied.

After attending this live audio event, you will know the recommended time frame to initiate an authorization, how to deal with an authorization that was not done prior to the procedure, and what to do if you don’t know the code for the scheduled procedure. Thomas will also go over Medicare and Medicaid replacements. Best of all, she’ll show you how to be sure you get paid for the services your office provides.
