Fighting the Rising Tide of Claim Denials: A Physician Speaks Out
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Denials by payors for hospital claims continue to mount. Hospitals should take every opportunity to have a denial overturned – and an oft-neglected method is with a peer-to-peer call for a concurrent denial. A physician advisor can dedicate time and resources to accomplish it, but what do you do when the payor insists on only speaking with the attending physician?

Since this is a recurring issue with providers and auditors, Monitor Mondays has asked Dr. Chris Shearer to report on this untenable issue – and to offer advice to other providers.
