Why is the presenter the expert on this topic?
I have been working in the spine reimbursement industry for 30 years. My focus has been not only working through the coding obstacles of spine reimbursement, but also overcoming the reimbursement hurdles. I founded Business Dynamics RCM in 1997, a revenue cycle firm dedicate to the spine industry. BD-RCM continues to succeed by expanding our operations, developing staff efficiency and providing the continuous training and skills needed to develop top agents in the field of Spine Coding and Reimbursement. This is demonstrated in the operational structure that promotes the detailed services needed to fully maximize reimbursement while remaining compliant with the ever changing business of spine. These services include coding by our certified spine coding team, swift submission of claims, analysis of every surgical claims, aggressively appealing incorrect payments and denials and encouraging state agency and insurance executive office assistance when carriers do not comply with policy or industry guidelines.
