On the Front Lines: How to Prevent Fraud, Waste and Abuse as a Coder Webinar

Learn more about this event

As a coder, you are at the front lines when it comes to the origins of a medical claim. This session will focus on red flags to be aware of when coding a claim, and what to watch for prior to that claim being sent to the insurance company. The reality is that healthcare claims are reviewed and analyzed for suspected fraud, waste and abuse. To help from a coding perspective, this session will focus on defining fraud, waste, and abuse, and how you can prepare for an independent audit. We will also discuss the perspective of an insurance company and what tools they use to benchmark and analyze claims data, and what steps your organization can take to understand your own internal benchmarks.

Why is this topic important?
Coders play a key role in fraud prevention because they are on the frontlines and origin of a claim/medical bill. This topic helps coders know what to look for and steps to take to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse (FWA).

Who would benefit from this topic?
Coders, Auditors, Compliance Officers, Coders that work for payers.

How would this benefit the individual and/or their company?
The individual will learn what FWA red flags to look for, and can be proactive within their organization on what they are seeing, and questioning if something doesn’t look right. The organization benefits by providing training to their staff, and knowing they have certified coders that know how to accurately code.

What information or new skills will the attendee take away from this webinar?

  • What are the FWA red flags to be aware of
  • What steps you can take as a coder or auditor
  • What can you do to better understand your organizations patterns
  • What is the perspective of the health plan/payer
