12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
All Aboard! Streamlining Payer Enrollment
Donna Goestenkors, CPMSM, EMSP, and Dina Solis, PESC

APP-Avalanche: Payer Enrollment for Nonphysician Practitioners
Donna Goestenkors, CPMSM, EMSP, and Yesenia Servin, CPMSM, PESC
Payer enrollment specialists are adept at juggling and tracking multiple providers. However, advanced practice professionals, or APPs—such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and registered nurse anesthetists—can pose an avalanche of challenges to an industry once geared to physicians. Join Team Med Global for a discussion of mechanisms to streamline payer enrollment for nonphysician practitioners and achieve optimal revenue recovery.

  • Pinpoint credentialing and payer enrollment differences between physicians and APPs

Tech-Tastic! Streamlining CAQH Applications
Donna Goestenkors, CPMSM, EMSP, and Larry DeHoyos, CPCS, PESC
The Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH) database is the cornerstone of payer enrollment, with nine out of 10 private insurers using CAQH for certain provider types. Yet incomplete CAQH applications delay enrollment and have an immediate impact on an organization’s bottom line. Join Team Med Global’s payer enrollment team as they reveal processes designed to increase CAQH efficiencies and utilization, and to fast-track reimbursements.

  • Identify three processes that expedite CAQH configuration and setup
  • Describe best practices for communicating with providers
