ERISAclaim.com Announced the Nation's First Certification Program for the ERISA Claim Appeal Specialist for Healthcare Providers and Managed-Care Payers
Date:10/13/2009

For the first time in U.S. healthcare history, ERISAclaim.com is offering the nation's first eight-day Certification Program for ERISA Claim Appeal Specialist, starting from January 14-15, 2010, in Chicago Illinois, for healthcare providers, managed-care third-party payers (TPA), benefits administrators and healthcare attorneys as well as the state regulators. This ERISA Certification Program is a comprehensive, systematic and advanced problem-oriented interactive learning process, designed to learn and master the most important federal law, ERISA, which governs and regulates more than 90% of non-Medicare commercial claims and more than 60% of healthcare claim denial reasons for the past 35 years.

Hanover Park, IL (PRWEB) October 12, 2009 -- For the first time in U.S. healthcare history, ERISAclaim.com is offering the nation's first eight-day certification program for ERISA Claim Appeal Specialist, starting from January 14-15, 2010, in Chicago Illinois, for healthcare providers, managed-care third-party payers (TPA), benefits administrators and healthcare attorneys as well as the state regulators.

ERISA, Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, is a federal law that governs and regulates healthcare claims for estimated more than 170 million Americans who obtained health insurance or benefits from employment in private sector, for both self-insured and fully-insured (through purchase of insurance) health plans. ERISA law completely (100%) preempts, supersedes and invalidates any and all state laws and private managed-care contracts for PPOs and HMOs in any and all dispute over denial of benefits from an ERISA plan. ERISA regulates and governs healthcare claims which include the paid ERISA healthcare claims in more than 50% of $2.4 trillion, 16.6% of GDP, of the national health expenditure in 2008, and also include the denied healthcare claims, legitimately or wrongly for appealable claims, in more than 50% of $5 trillion in the aggregated denied healthcare claims in 2008. More than 60-70% of healthcare claim denials from insurance companies and managed-care third-party payers by employer-sponsored plans are due to ERISA regulated plan or policy coverage, limitations and exclusions rather than traditional billing, coding, medical necessity and managed care contracting or participation dispute. Although in the past 35 years the notices for ERISA rights to appeal were written on almost every EOB (Explanation of Benefits) in the daily practice in doctors' offices and hospitals, the healthcare providers, managed-care third-party payers, and even legal professionals as well as the state regulators rarely understood how to conduct, manage or regulate ERISA claim appeals for ERISA claim denials and disputes.

The current Obama healthcare reform, regardless which version will prevail, will increase ERISA coverage from current 74% of civilian workers covered with health insurance under ERISA (as of March 2009) to 100% covered civilian workers, to cover, as early as next year, estimated more than 230 million civilian workers and their families. And the new Obama Department Of Labor (DOL) has sworn in to change federal ERISA enforcement from Bush's symbolic, "no teeth", ERISA voluntary compliance assistance to strike-force, "New Sheriff", ERISA enforcement on ERISA claim regulation, for healthcare claims from employer-sponsored and new federal mandated health plans for more than 230 million Americans.

There have been urgent and popular regulatory needs and market demands for ERISA claim compliance education and training in this $6 trillion healthcare denial management market.

ERISAclaim.com is offering the nation's first systematic, comprehensive and advanced eight-day ERISA Certification Program for ERISA Claim Appeals Specialist, starting from January 14, 2010, in light of increasing managed-care claim denials and new explosive litigations under ERISA and RICO in an era of skyrocketing healthcare costs in the midst of unprecedented economic recession. ERISAclaim.com is making U.S. healthcare history by teaching and training in this most important Federal law for healthcare providers, managed-care third-party payers (TPA), benefits administrators, healthcare attorneys and the state regulators, in accordance with U.S. Supreme Court rulings in Aetna v. Davila and ERISA claim regulation.

ERISAclaim.com is currently the only company in the country that provides comprehensive, systematic and advanced ERISA healthcare claim education, consulting and publishing primarily for the healthcare providers and industry consultants.

"If 'ERISA Miranda's Rights' to appeal for every claim denial is on every denial notice daily in doctors' offices and hospitals for 35 years, and according to U.S. Supreme Court, ERISA is the only correct way to go for denied claims with ERISA plans, regardless of HMO or PPO, and for cost of more than $1.2 trillion in paid ERISA claims each year, and with more than least $3 - 4 trillion in denied ERISA claims, why can't we do what Congress intended, Supreme Court instructed and each daily denial notice explained, "ERISA Miranda's Rights" to appeal?", said Dr. Jin Zhou, the president of ERISAclaim.com.

To resolve daily medical claim dispute and healthcare crisis, Dr. Jin Zhou suggested that the compliant ERISA benefits administration and ERISA appeals by all parties are the best ways to reduce or eliminate unnecessary healthcare wastes, costly and lengthy litigations. The healthcare claim dispute is similar to the traffic accidents. With voluntary traffic law compliance by the drivers and with meaningful enforcement by our government, we can expect to live in a reasonable safe environment. Without traffic law compliance by all drivers, we will be living in a very dangerous environment. By the same token, without ERISA claim appeal compliance by all parties and meaningful enforcement from the federal government, we cannot expect claim honesty, efficiency and fairness in healthcare delivery system.

It also provides ERISA litigation support, research assistance and fraud and abuse prevention as well as PPO auditing defense consulting.
