Claims from the Payer’s Perspective: Through the Looking Glass
Presentation Abstract: The role of the traditional health plan is changing. Long gone are the established practices of managing healthcare – resource-focused. Today, payers are shifting away from strict cost containment and focusing on managing health through member-focused and provider-aligned processes and data. Step through the looking glass as this session explores the importance of documentation and claims coding to communicating the nuances of your patients and care delivery to the people who pay you. You will be introduced to mega-trends underway due to expanding consumer expectations to have value in healthcare.
Educational Learning Objectives: By the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:
1. Explain the operations of a health plan as a counterpoint to the medical practice and hospitals.
2. Identify emerging operations being designed to transform payers into health value management organizations.
3. Discuss the view of health care from provider-specific roles to harmonized objectives with health plans.
