Classes are taught by:
Mori West CPC, the CEO of Acuclaims, an insurance billing company for Acupuncturists. Last year Acuclaims collected over 10 million dollars for their clients. Mori is a member of AMBA (American Medical Billing Assoc.) and was their 2010 member of the year. She is also certified as a Professional Coder with AAPC (American Academy of Professional Coders.)
Special instruction on basic orthopedic exams to strengthen your clinical documentation will be provided by Roger West DC, QME. Dr West is a longtime advocate of acupuncture and for the last 33 years worked side by side with an acupuncturist is his practice. Dr. West is a qualified medical evaluator appointed by the state of California.
Mori West, the owner of ACUCLAIMS began billing over 30 years ago. She is a featured speaker at Acupuncture Colleges and Acupuncture State Associations across the country. Since Acuclaims bills for providers nationwide she is able to impart up to date information that comes from submitting thousands of claims per month. Experience counts and few people, few companies have the level of experience that Mori West and her team at Acuclaims have.
Here are what her students are saying:
I have taken two of Mori's billing seminars and they have proved
invaluable to my solo practice. Course information is comprehensive and
up-to-date. Billing procedures are presented in a way that is easy to
understand and implement in your clinic. Mori will tell you about
ethical billing practices and how to avoid pitfalls. Information is also
payer specific, which I found very helpful. Mori is truly the voice of
experience and the expert in all things related to acupuncture claims.
Perhaps best of all, Mori continues to answer questions and provide
support after her seminar is over. She goes above and beyond to help
individuals and the profession as a whole. I recommend Mori's seminars
to every acupuncturist.
Mori's course on insurance was extremely thorough. She takes the time to
breakdown the information and provides plenty of resources. You feel
much more confident to start billing on your own and gives you a wealth
of information. I highly recommend this class to any acupuncturist, from
beginner to a pro needing a review or an update. The information is
invaluable. Thank you Mori!
If you ever take a seminar/webinar from Mori West, you won't regret
it. I started off hiring a few billers which was a disaster. They just
did a poor job of filing claims and/or filed in a way which would
ultimately get me red flagged. So I decided to learn it on my own and
file my own claims. I've been doing that for almost a year now and I
really wish I had taken this course before filing my own claims. It was
so informative. Mori has a way of teaching that keeps you engaged and
considering I'm not the type of person that likes dealing with
administrative issues, I think that's saying a lot. Even if you're not
billing insurance yourself, I really think taking this course will help
you out a lot in so many other ways. Office practices, superbills,
documentation and so much more. Thank you Mori for sharing this
information with us !
I have to say it was the best money I've ever spend on a
CEU course as a newly established practitioner. Thank you again for
clearing up the insurance game a little bit.
I just wanted to let you know I got paid. The UHC plan that we were talking bout the other day paid all but $28 of what I billed. I didn't even have to have them resubmit (because she has medicare). I have also created a fee schedule that I am comfortable with.You deserve a medal for what you have done with my brain. Maureen G.
Hi Mori, I was in your Columbia MD workshop. I have been in practice since 1996 and I must tell you it is by far the best workshop I have ever taken on business matters for acupuncturists. Yes, really! Barbara D.
I found the online seminar to be extremely thorough. Mori took the time
to speak with me and go through every question I had. I highly
