Show Notes

In this episode, Dr. Ezana Azene joins Dr. Christopher Beck to discuss reviewing medical cases for insurance claims. Dr. Azene tells us how often he reviews insurance claims for IR procedures, and he explains what the step-by-step process looks like once he gets a case to review.

We discuss how to search for information to show a procedure was done in extenuating circumstances by looking at clinic notes and labs, in addition to previous reviews from other physicians. We review some mistakes that physicians make that could keep an insurance claim from being approved, and we discuss why documenting all previous interventions is important.

We explain why it is helpful to understand the patient’s insurance policy and how citing articles and references can support an insurance claim. Dr. Azene shares how reviewing medical cases has improved his documentation, and we give some advice on how to get involved in this process.
