In the world of complex claims, one often overlooked aspect that can negatively impact both patients and providers is the intricate web of contracts that govern the healthcare industry. In this enlightening discussion, we sit down with attorneys Nancy Momcilovic and Jeff Podraza who will share tips on how to prevent denials on the front end including bridging the gap between hospitals’ operational and legal teams to put up strong lines of defense against payers. There are many challenges and strategies surrounding healthcare denials, but the careful management of contracts can be a game-changer in preventing denials.

Listeners will gain insights into:

·         Mitigating lopsided managed care agreements.
