Many hospital revenue cycle staff members do not have a solid understanding of the legal ins and outs when it comes to third party reimbursement law.  Unfortunately their hospitals can miss out on reimbursement opportunities due to lack of such knowledge.  Conducted in an interactive format, this presentation will cover the federal and state reimbursement laws that staff can apply when managing claims.
