Arkansas Medicaid is committed to helping providers understand billing policy and successful claims submission. With these priorities in mind, we offer opportunities to increase your knowledge throughout the year and in a variety of locations and formats. Electronic training documents are also available for download below.
NOTE: The documents available for download will open in a new window. These documents require Adobe® Acrobat Reader, Microsoft® PowerPoint or Microsoft® Word to view or print the files. If you click a link and the document doesn't open, download the Acrobat Reader, download the PowerPoint viewer, or download the Word viewer free so that you can view or print the documents.
Are you and your staff confused or frustrated by Medicaid billing policy, the claim submission process or Provider Electronic Solutions (PES) software? Are you unable to travel to Medicaid training workshops held throughout the year at various locations? If you answered “yes” to either question, a web-based training workshop is for you! Now you can attend a class without leaving your office. The Arkansas Division of Medical Services, HP Enterprise Services and BreastCare invite you to attend via a web-based classroom environment. The classes are designed to help you:
- with software set-up for prompt and accurate billing,
- understand fundamentals of the claim submission process, issues surrounding claim denials and actions you can take to prevent future denials,
- set up and use PES to submit claims,
- register for and use WebRA and
- understand billing policy for your specialty.
If you have any questions, issues or concerns related to web-based training, please e-mail Karen Young at email@example.com.
