Member Training Opportunity on Claims Processing Issues

NPA will sponsor a webinar titled "EDI vs. Standard Claim Form vs. Invoice: How the Submission Method Impacts Your PACE Organization" on Tuesday, April 30, at 3 p.m. ET. Peak Health Plan Management Services, a subsidiary of Capstone, will provide the training, which is recommended for executive directors, CFOs, contract managers, and accounting or finance staff.

PACE organizations contract with many specialty organizations, some of which provide incentives or discounts, so they can simplify their billing. This training will explore the implications of your contract terms on regulatory reporting and the potential to impact your future Medicare and Medicaid revenue.

To register for the training, visit GoToWebinar. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

For more information, contact Lani Cadow, manager of Member Services.
