Medicare Advantage Denials: A Call to Arms!

Recently CMS requested that all interested healthcare providers comment on the Part C Medicare Advantage program by Wednesday, August 31st. A 2022 report from the OIG shows how much our patients suffer due to the “big business” Medicare Advantage plans. By privatizing Medicare, CMS has let the proverbial foxes into the henhouse, and they have no incentive to leave. This needs to change.

Denise Wilson will moderate the discussion and provide additional step-by-step instruction on how to easily make your voices heard from every corner of the country.
