All third party payers, including government health plans, have stepped up their audit activity. It is not longer a matter of “if” you go through an audit, but is now a matter of “when” you are selected for an audit. CMA and SFMS is offering “What You Need to Know about Surviving Medicare and Medi-Cal Audits” webinar on August 3, 2011 from 12:15 to 1:15pm to ensure members are adequately informed and prepared for Medicare and Medi-Cal audits.
Featured presenter Mary Jean Sage will discuss:
- Recognizing those things that put your practice at risk for an audit
- How you know you are being audited
- Handling a request for records
- What do you do with your results
This webinar is offered at no charge to SFMS members and their staff. To register for this or any CMA webinar, please visit www.cmanet.org/calendar.
Today’s health care providers depend on medical billing collections to keep practices profitable and patient-friendly. In many practices, collection activities take a back seat to a myriad of other daily office activities.
To assist our members with medical billing collections, SFMS and CMA will be hosting two complimentary medical billing collections webinars featuring Mary Jean Sage. Featured topics include:
- Defining the practice collection process
- Determining who does what
- Basic collection techniques; effective collection techniques
- When collection efforts fail – what’s the next step
Mary Jean Sage is a nationally recognized speaker and has worked with many medical groups including the AMA, CMA, SFMS, American Academy of Pediatrics, and Hills Physicians Medical Group. She was instrumental in developing the Certified Medical Billing Associate program, which credentials medical billers and served as the initial Certification Director for the program.
The webinars are scheduled for Wednesday, July 6 at 12:15pm – 1:15pm and 6:15pm – 7:15pm. Both webinars offer the same content, and is offered at no charge to SFMS members and their staff. To register for this or any CMA webinar, please visit www.cmanet.org/calendar.
