Even if your Medicare claim denial or overpayment appeal is denied (twice), you still have a chance to get your claim paid. The next level of appeal is called an Administrative Law Judge (AL J). Knowing whether you should request a level 3 appeal, accept the prior denial or take some other action can have a massive impact on your financial bottom line.
AL J appeals have some significant differences in how they’re handled, but with a solid understanding of the process, you can get paid by Medicare for more of the services you provide. That’s where healthcare attorney, Wayne J. Miller, Esq., can help. During his 60-minute, online training session, he’ll walk you through exactly what it will take to get your appeal heard by an AL J, and how to improve your chances of getting your previous denials overturned.
Here are just a few of the practical AL J tactics that will help you improve your chances of winning your Medicare appeal during this 60-minute online training.
