Medisoft Training and some onther questions from a newbie
« on: April 10, 2008, 09:15:54 AM »


Can anyone advise me on where I can get some quick training on the MediSoft software.  I applied for a medical collections postion which I am experiended in but they said knowledge of MediSoft would be helpful??

Also when claims are denied what would you say are the top 10 reasons?

Is their a reasonable billing and coding online course that does not take over 3 months??  Also want to take a HIPAA compliance course online!!

What are the basic HIPAA regulations??  The main things to be aware of??

And last but not least how do you go about getting pre=authorization from an insurance company.
I am really trying to learn the medical billing jargon because the success of my collections will involve some insurance follow up work.

Any help is greatly appreciated and I thank god I located this site.

Sorry for the delay in responding! 

First, I do not know anywhere you can get a crash course in Medisoft.  If you have any other Practice Management Software experience and you are pretty proficient on the computer you should be fine.  It is a fairly user friendly software.  You could always go to the Medisoft website and see if they have a demo. 

As far as top 10 claim denials, that's a great idea for an article.  I will email you when it is done.  Too long to include in this post.  Alice did write an article on appealing a denial.  You can read it at  http://ezinearticles.com/?Medical-Insurance-Claim-Denials---7-Steps-to-Get-Them-Paid&id=334952

I am really not familiar with any of the online courses but I have not heard of any that are < 3 months.

I also am not aware of any HIPAA courses, but we do have an articles= about HIPAA that may help you,

Pre-auth can usually be obtained by calling the insurance company.  In some  cases, the company has a form that they require that you fax in for pre-auth.  Each company has their own requirements.  Anyway if you just understand what pre-auth is, and the importance of getting it, you should be ok.  If you don't know with a particular company, just call the insurance company and ask what they require. 

Good luck!
