With all states having mandates that require some level of insurance coverage for the treatment of autism, providers have turned to health care funders as a primary source of reimbursement for services. Building a culture of compliance within your Revenue Cycle Management team can aid in building a collaborative force in identifying and solving obstacles before they become risks and barriers to care.
In this webinar, we will outline the functions and roles within the revenue cycle that can contribute to adhering to compliance standards aligning with your core values which can build confidence in helping providers stay out of harm’s way of fraudulent activity. We will also review steps to take in setting up a voluntary compliance program in your organization and where revenue cycle management falls into that plan.
