Accurately Transition to New Medicare Cards and Avoid Costly Denials

Clear

The new Medicare cards will negatively impact your Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement – unless you’re prepared.

Your patients’ social security number will no longer be their Medicare ID number. Instead, Medicare has implemented an 11-character alpha numeric Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). This new MBI will be the source of many of the problems you’ll experience, unless your transition to this new Medicare payments process goes smoothly.

If you don’t take charge right now you could stop receiving Medicare and Medicaid payments altogether. Remember, you are your only advocate when it comes to your reimbursement. No one else is going to fight for you. But, there is something you can do to help…

Medicare billing expert, Dawn R. Cloud, CPC, CMSCS, CHCI, CPOM, will walk you through how to avoid the most common errors related to Medicare’s new cards, and how to keep your reimbursement flowing.

Here are just a few of the step-by-step, practical tactics you’ll be able to apply after viewing this expert-led, 60-minute online training:

  • Uncover and avoid hidden electronic health record software pitfalls
  • Don’t let your claims processing system give you the runaround and get your payments put on hold
