Speaker: Michael Newell RN, MSN
Session Title: How to Never Lose an Insurance Appeal
Session Date/Time: Thursday, May 4, 2017 – 4:15 – 5:30 pm
Description: LifeSpan Care Management has successfully collaborated on insurance appeals for Medicare, Medicaid, commercial health insurance, Long term disability insurance, and long term care insurance over the last 12 years of practice. Since the Affordable Care Act provision that mandates that care be covered while an insurance appeal is filed, there is an opportunity for care advocate to show value to their clients, with ROI’s upwards of 40/1. An understanding of insurance coverage, clinical care and validated outcomes measurement tools enables successful advocacy for clients and families who are denied coverage.
