• Learn more about electronic attachments for claims

    Getting paid sometimes takes more than submitting a claim. Sometimes, it requires submitting attachments to the claim. Unfortunately, the attachment process required to support a claim is often a manual, time consuming, and costly one that delays payments.

    Electronic attachments are an alternative that can simplify and optimize revenue cycle management by reducing payment time cycles. They can also reduce denials and appeals.

    For those interested in learning more about electronic attachments, National Government Services (a Medicare administrative contractor) is offering a free webinar on March 5 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. (EST). Among other things, the webinar will cover:

    • The three key electronic attachment strategies to reduce denials and appeals
    • Electronic attachment Key Performance Indicators
    • Leveraging your attachment framework to streamline implementation and achieve return on investment
    • Attachment Third Party Industry Resources
    • Workflows and tasks that would be good candidates for automation

    The webinar is intended for all physicians who are burdened by paper documentation requests and would like to use electronic claims attachments to reduce costs and paperwork while improving cash flow.

    Registration information is available online. Preregistration is mandatory, and space is limited.

    Once you register, an email including instructions for accessing the event will be sent to the email address you provide. You will need the unique link in the confirmation email to attend.
