Primary Care physicians along with subspecialities who provide care for immunocompromised persons are not always familiar with the complex vaccine recommendations for immunocompromised persons.  This leaves a highly vulnerable group at an even greater risk for infection.  On Wednesday, September 14, 12:00 – 12:45 pm, Jennifer Morse, MD, MPH, FAAP, will provide general information regarding the use of vaccines in individuals with immunocompromising conditions as well as their household members.  She will also provide resources to help guide you in these recommendations.

Helping Patients Navigate Insurance Coverage**

Helping patients navigate their insurance coverage is an important piece for success in all medical practices.  Medical insurance is a contract with the subscriber, but most plans do not help a subscriber/patient understand the difference between co-payment, co-insurance, deductible and plan maximums.  On Wednesday, September 14, 1:00 – 2:00 pm, Kathy Jo Uecker, CMPE, EFPM, NCP, CPC, COC, AAPC Fellow, CHSPA, CHSA, will provide some ideas on how she has been able to bring clarity to this for patients and practices.  She will jump into all the “lingo” that third party insurance carriers use and put it into simple terms that staff can use to help their patients better understand their obligations and responsibilities.
