Whether you’re in private practice, primary care, outpatient or other ambulatory setting, navigating the world of healthcare billing, coding, and payment can be difficult. From identifying business opportunities and becoming credentialed providers to generating and adjudicating claims, subject matter experts will share best practices for getting the revenue you deserve. Solutions to common payment pitfalls will be offered, such as what to do if a provider network is full, how to resolve billing issues and respond to denials, and what to do when a diagnosis is not listed as a covered benefit under a patient’s health plan. Speakers will also address in- and out-of-network status, the impact of billing on the future of dietetic practice, and why you should bill under your own National Provider Identifier (NPI) number.
