Description

Please join us as Dr. Ralph Wuebker, Chief Medical Officer, Optum Executive Health Resources, discusses how to manage some of the current challenges impacting hospital case management. Managing denial and appeal processes can be a long and frustrating undertaking. As commercial and Managed Medicare/Medicaid denials continue to grow, hospitals face serious threats to their financial health from revenue lingering in denial limbo. It is important to understand best practices and approach to keeping denials at a minimum. In addition, as of January 1, 2018 CMS has removed the CPT code 27447 total knee replacements from the Inpatient only list. The overall goal is to understand documentation needed to allow for Total Knee Replacements to reflect the medical necessity for an Inpatient level of care.

2.5 contact hours are pending approval through the following: ACM, MO/IL Registered Nurses and SW
