The Lead Story:
Clinical validation denials can be exasperating. Especially if diagnoses are valid and supported with detailed documentation. Join us for the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays when our special guest Erica Remer, MD will explain how to empower those tasked to query when they believe the clinical support for a documented diagnosis is absent. She will also tell you how to use escalation when encountering excessive resistance. Register now.
