Effective Prior Authorization & Avoiding Peer-to-Peer Calls @ Nashville Academy of Medicine
Apr 10 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Join NAM and member Bob Neaderthal, MD for an educational session on getting effective prior authorization and avoiding peer to peer calls.

During this session, Dr. Neaderthal will teach attendees how to avoid prior authorization calls for advanced imaging studies such as CT, MRI, PET scans and nuclear cardiac tests.  Prior authorization and peer-to-peer calls have become two of the most cumbersome and time-consuming administrative burdens that providers face in their practices every day and most peer-to-peer calls are avoidable.

Dr. Neaderthal combines 30 years of solo internal medicine practice in Nashville with 8-years as a medical director for the largest prior authorization company in the US to offer a unique perspective in helping physicians avoid administrative hassles. He provides personal lectures and webinars to physician groups and local and national medical associations on  “How to Avoid Peer-to-Peer Calls.”
