Why lose half, or more, of a reimbursement because of secondary payers claiming the primary already covered their share? Why wait years to collect until the matter is settled? Learn to negotiate terms in your contracts enabling you to receive all billed charges whenever possible. A special focus on apportioned claims and subrogation issues with Managed Care will be included. This class is well-suited for both revenue cycle staff and contract negotiators!
