About This Webinar

Inaccuracies and inefficiencies in claims processing cost the health care industry hundreds of billions of dollars each year. Processing these claims is arduous and complicated with pricing that varies by region, specialty, and provider group – all while keeping up with constantly changing fee schedules and regulations. Pricing accuracy is critical to prevent costly failed audits as well as to avoid “pay-and-chase” activities, costly rework, and other manual processes.

Modernizing claims processing and adopting best practices is crucial to paying claims accurately and staying compliant with ever-changing regulations. Learn how one health insurance provider implemented payment integrity technology to tackle the challenges of staying compliant, passing audits, improving accuracy, reducing manual work, and improving efficiencies.

  • Best practices for payment accuracy and integrity
  • How to stay current with changing regulations and be “audit-ready”
  • Tangible time and money savings practices that impact the bottom line
