Indiana AAHAM’s 2001 Fall Conference was a success! The meeting was held in Nashville Indiana at the beautiful Salt Creek Golf Retreat. John Currier, CPAM, CCT started off the meeting updating everyone on National AAHAM. Currently AAHAM has a record number of members!
The conference continued with timely topics such as Team Building; Uninsured Challenges; Sharing Best Practices; Managing Appeals & Denials; and HIPAA/HITECH.
AAHAM’s Indiana Chapter President, Chet Klene, commented that he was very pleased with the turnout and the responses. “Every attendee I spoke with said they were very pleased with the knowledge and networking they gained from coming. We worked very hard to provide the kind of program Patient Accounts Managers deserve and want. We are already working on next year’s agenda.”
Indiana AAHAM President, Chet Klene, met briefly with Indiana Senator Richard Lugar in Washington D.C. on AAHAM Legislative Day in April.
AAHAM had four issues they presented in regards to lowering healthcare costs: Uniform insurance cards, uniform patient ID numbers, EFT remittance, and uniform acknowledgement of receipt of claims.
All Indiana offices, including Senator Lugar, Senator Bayh, and Representative Carter were in agreement with AAHAM.
