A Practical Approach to Defending Against Medicare Advantage Payers

  • Date: September 17, 2019
  • Time: 2:00 pm ET | 11:00 am PT
  • Duration:  60 minutes

Medicare limited the scope of the Revenue Recovery Contractors (RACs), now these same companies are working with Medicare Advantage payers. For the recovery auditors, MA is a virtual paradise compared to Medicare. No chart limits, no public bidding process, and an appeals process that is confusing and primarily controlled by the very payer whose denial is being questioned. 

So, what do hospitals need to do about this? How should hospitals manage these new “denial tactics”?

Join this webinar to learn:

  • Who are the “New RACs” and what tactics are they leveraging to reduce hospital revenue?
  • What are the 5 areas targeted by the MA payers for revenue erosion?
  • How do you monitor performance by payer across different hospital departments?
  • How do you implement an action plan and monitor progress?

We hope you can join us for this webinar!
