As you make your resolutions for 2011, be sure to add "Join the ACTION Campaign webinars" to your list.
The NIATx ACTION Campaign offers two free webinars per month. In the next six months, most of our webinars will focus on helping substance abuse treatment agencies of all sizes learn how to create or improve their billing systems. We’ll be working to bust some of the myths that keep agencies from working with third-party payers.
In the ACTION webinars, experts and peers will share their experiences that show that you don't need:
- a contract with an insurance provider to submit a bill for services
- a large billing department; or
- to purchase an expensive electronic billing system.
All webinars/conference calls are scheduled for 12:00pm EST/11:00pm CST/10:00am MST/9:00am PST. You can find more information here.
One of our resolutions for 2011 is to have 3,000 individuals and organizations active in the ACTION Campaign. We’re very close—can you help us meet that goal by inviting a friend or colleague to join the Campaign? It’s easy to sign up here.
