Unlocking Claim Confusion: The Key is Proper Documentation

Proper documentation is a critical key to efficient claim processing. Submissions that are complete, accurate and include the right supporting diagnostics are processed faster and reduce the need for resubmissions, which both delay adjudication and increase staff and patient frustration. This webinar will review key sections of the ADA claim form, current CDT codes that tend to be problematic, and appropriate diagnostics and narratives as well as discuss the administration of an alternate benefit provision.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe what constitutes a clean claim submission.  
  2. Assign appropriate coding and identify diagnostic attachments to aid in claim processing. 
  3. Explain how the administration of an alternate benefit provision impacts the allowable benefits of the OMS and patient.
