Financial Focus: Insights into Accounts Receivable and Denial Management

Monday, October 21, 3-3:50 p.m. ET


Denied claims and aging accounts receivable (A/R)—they’re some of the most common problems plaguing behavioral health organizations today. So, how we do we get around them? Clean claim submission is integral to healthy revenue cycles and prompt revenue collection; claims requiring multiple touches impede productivity and unnecessarily increase days in A/R. By improving your claim-submission processes to decrease A/R days and future denials, and by benchmarking your organization to behavioral health A/R and denial standards, you can create KPIs for denial management and A/R that increases your organization’s cash flow. During this 50-minute webinar, we’ll teach you how to decrease denials and shorten A/R days in your organization, leading to improved efficiencies and increased success..


Financial Focus: Eligibility, Authorization and Credentialing Best Practices

Monday, November 18, 3-3:50 p.m. ET


Constantly changing fee schedules, eligibility requirements and reimbursement regulations can make billing seem like a never-ending struggle. Their impact on an organization can include higher denial rates, longer processing times, delayed reimbursements and rising account receivables, impairing your ability to serve clients and fulfill your mission. In this 50-minute webinar, we will share five ways you can immediately maximize reimbursement in your organization, while teaching your staff how to become more efficient, effective and improved billers, resulting in increased net collections in the continuously changing ecosystem of behavioral health billing.
