Part 3 in our series on working with insurance: (Insurance Contracts: Maintenance and Compliance)
After covering the processes to become an in-network provider in the first two webinars, it is time to dive into best practices for ongoing payer diligence. Staying educated and compliant as a provider takes ongoing effort. Providers need to know the terms of their contracts and be able to stay up to date with any changes to provider requirements. Many providers get overwhelmed with the day-to-day and forget about contract obligations until a payer issue escalates. In this webinar, we will cover provider network requirements, compliance procedures, tracking payer updates, and dealing with contract amendments.
