HFS Provider Meeting Material
To have your item discussed during an HFS Provider Meeting please use this template to provide an overview of the billing issue. The overview template should be sent a week prior to the meeting and it is highly recommended that you send it through your provider association to aggregate the issues to ensure all items are discussed in an organized manner.
Personal Health Information should never be listed on this template. Items listed in this template should not be single claims nor should this template be used to raise an issue to an MCO for the first time. The purpose of this template and these meetings is to escalate concerns that have not been addressed through working with your provider representative.
