Reimbursement Overview

One of the most frustrating issues facing members of the Society is overdue payments, especially rejections for approved drugs in approved tumor types by approved methods. These issues are being addressed head on through liaison committees at the carrier level. This allows us to combine the efforts of our membership to pinpoint and prioritize issues to be addressed by insurance companies. Our main goal is to get insurance companies to correct system problems so future claims will be paid on first submission.

Please keep in mind that MSHO cannot directly submit status claims for our member offices. The liaison process is not to get a single claim paid, but to prevent system errors.

MSHO works directly with our member practices to provide a mechanism to educate and support our reimbursement personnel throughout the state. If your practice is a member of MSHO and you are involved in reimbursement, please be sure to check the MSHO event page to obtain information on the next MSHO Reimbursement Meeting.
