In the presentation "Fighting Back Against Insurers' Aggressive Tactics," Elizabeth Lemoine, JD, will dis- cuss sure-fire ways to defend your reimbursements against payors' strong-arm tactics. • Understand the legal foundations. A lot of facility lead- ers may not have a very good understanding of the legal relationship between third-party payors and healthcare providers. For example, knowing the dif- ference between state-regulated insurance plans and Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) plans helps define how your rights may be restricted and how to formulate billing and appeal strategies. It's also important to understand how good record- keeping can make or break claims for non-payment, and what the current trends are in billing litigation. Getting the Upper Hand In Billing Litigation Defend yourself against payors who deny and delay payments. Speaker Profile • Partner at Wick Phillips in Dallas, Texas. • Litigator with extensive experi- ence working with healthcare providers on compliance issues, billing disputes and employment agreements. • Received her JD from the George Washington University Law School.
