Decrease risk of Medicare Part A/B denials; Polaris Group can help you achieve compliance.
Advanced Billing for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF)

This 3-day workshop offers comprehensive SNF Advanced Billing training that will help you successfully submit and receive payment for atypical claims such as, Medicare Secondary Payer, Medicare Advantage, HMO, and Insurance.

Polaris Group, with over 27 years of hands-on experience, provides expert training and review of the atypical claims process.  Polaris Group’s LTC Training Institute – Advanced Billing for SNF’s workshop will cover numerous topics including creation of compliant claims for complex billing situations, problem solving for atypical claims, ICD-10-CM and claim, and QA oversight of your Business Office.  Sessions include an overview of current MAC claim issues, and a look at the various government audit agencies and how to reduce your risk for audit and denials.

Attendees will receive a comprehensive training manual that can be used as a resource in your facility, as well as a CD with forms and procedures, which allows for customization to fit your operational needs. 

We provide a unique “how to” approach to our training.  Small class size enables all participants the chance to interact and to get answers to those questions surrounding the atypical claims process.  The workshop will provide Billers with the tools they will need to ensure timely revenue and manage the complexities of Medicare compliance in the ever-changing billing environment.
