AMA Claims Workflow Assistant
This free online tool from the AMA helps your practice secure accurate payment from health insurers for inappropriately denied claims, including those for workers’ compensation. Your practice can look up the reasons health insurers reported for denying claims on the electronic remittance advices (ERAs) your practice receives. After look-up, you can determine the best steps for your practice to address claim denials or non-payments. The tool also provides template appeal letters that AMA members can modify to use in their practices.
