Sepsis September

September is Sepsis Awareness Month

Sepsis is the #1 cause of death in U.S. hospitals, and insurance companies #1 payment denial. Why do we let the payers decide if you have a life-threatening infection?

In recognition of Sepsis Awareness Month, PayerWatch and AHDAM join together to present three Sepsis Denial/Appeal workshops:

  • Sepsis 2 vs. Sepsis 3 and How To Write a Successful Sepsis Appeal
  • Staying the Course in Sepsis Documentation and Avoiding Sepsis Diagnosis Challenges
  • Sepsis Current State – How to Appeal When the Payer Gets it Wrong

Webinar: Best Practices in the Appeals Process

Wednesday, September 21, 2022

Successfully overturning denials goes beyond writing a great appeal. Appeal specialists must employ best practices at every level of both the internal and external appeals process starting with peer-to-peer. Many AHDAM members are asking how best to manage various levels of appeal from a process as well as an appeal argument standpoint. In this session, we will present best practices for government and commercial payers’ appeal processes.
