Cade Saurage, La Hacienda’s Director of Utilization Management and Partnerships, will speak to the August 28 membership meeting of the Fort Worth Chapter of Texas Association of Addiction Professionals.
“Managed Care Friendly: A Guide to Better Reimbursement and a More Effective Process” is the topic.
“I will outline the process of creating and maintaining a successful collaborative managed care-payment operation while addressing ethics and strategy,” says Cade, who has worked in managed healthcare for more than 15 years.
He will also provide the pros and cons of in-network vs. out-of-network, talk about utilization management and authorizations, and go over the utilization review process.
