Laura A. Achorn, RHIT, CPC

Laura Achorn has more than 17 years in healthcare field. She has experience within many areas of the healthcare profession. She has obtained practical skills as well as a structured education in the field of Coding and Reimbursement.

During her career she has educated physicians as well as surgeons in multiple areas of specialty. Within her experience as a surgical coder she has gained the experience to identify missing components in the operative report. These missing documentation pieces in the operative report can lead to incorrect code selection by the coder as well as lost revenue for the physician.

Laura has assisted in medical record documentation workgroups to educate physicians of the importance of proper documentation to optimize their reimbursement.

Laura's experience with surgical coding allows her to submit effective appeals to insurance carriers for denied claims. Her experience has overturned denials such as medical necessity, erroneous multiple procedure reductions, and timely filing. Denied claims can lead to lost revenue for the physician practice; appeals should be submitted timely to be effective. More physicians and medical facilities are directing their focus and priority to denials management to increase net revenue.
