Two Appeals Are Better Than One: Helping Your Patients Submit Winning Appeals

What happens when patients receive health claim denial letters?

Does their blood pressure go up? Do they feel defeated and overwhelmed?

Do they call the insurance carrier? Or, more likely, do they call their trusted caregiver for assistance with this denied claim?

Patients typically seek guidance from providers on resolving insurance issues. Some are motivated and ready to appeal. Some are confused. Some are angry. Your response will have a dramatic impact on patient appeal success and their understanding of both the denial and their rights. However, your lack of response may leave them feeling alone and unable to tackle this new challenge.

Tammy Tipton, President of Appeal Solutions, will cover how to improve your patient advocacy skills in the upcoming audioconference Two Appeals Are Better Than One: Helping Patients Submit Appeals on Oct. 13th. The most obvious way to help patient with appeals, according to Tipton, is to develop a few basic appeal letters for your patients to use to initiate appeals.  However, sample appeal letters should not be distributed without providing the guidance necessary to use the letters with confidence.  During this 90-minute audioconference, Tipton will go over patient advocacy appeal steps designed to create a partnership between patient and provider through the appeal process.

AppealLettersOnline.com Featured Appeal Letters

Don’t let a coding denial go unchallenged just because the denial is ambiguous!

AppealLettersOnline.com has a number of coding appeal letters designed to demand the carrier’s internal coding criteria.  Coding denials can be problematic due to the carrier’s refusal to release the source of the coding guidance used to review the claim.  Further, it is important to seek a review of any coding denial from a certified coding professional familiar with the billed procedure.

AppealLettersOnline.com has two basic coding appeal letters under the appeals topic, Basic Letters Level I and II under the subtopic, Coding.  Also, be sure to review the letters under Specialty Care Appeal Review for specialty-specific coding appeal letters.  These letters are specifically designed to assist you with obtaining the exact coding criteria used by the carrier and seek disclosure of the credentials of the appeal reviewer
