Maximizing Managed Care Organization (MCO) Collections

Providers struggle with Managed Care Organization (MCO) reimbursement during Managed Care transition and this can continue long afterward.  Thin margins in our industry magnify the impact of this.  Denials prevent timely and complete payment, impacting cash flow and resource requirements in the Revenue Cycle department.  The learning curve is often very difficult, especially when dealing with multiple payers with different systems and processes.  Appropriate up-front management of the Revenue Cycle can serve to minimize payer denials, thereby improving payment throughout and required “re-touches” to get claims paid, and minimizing write-offs.

This webinar will help enable Home Care, Home Health and Hospice Agencies working with Managed Care to collect the highest percentage of billing from MCO’s in the shortest timeline, through ensuring claims are as clean as possible, and follow-up is consistent and timely.
