Over 150 practice administrators and physicians attended the Multi-Payer Expo yesterday, Tuesday, March 21, at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh. The Expo has been taking place periodically throughout the state for the last three years. The event allows practice representatives to meet with various insurance payers in one place at one time to gather information and get answers to questions. The North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) Project Manager, Solution Center Belinda Battle-McKoy and Director of Membership Joe Cupolo also were on hand to meet face-to-face with many of the practice managers and physicians who call the Solution Center looking for answers to their payer and other practice quandaries.
In addition to the booths for Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, United Healthcare, Medcost and LabCorp, there were two educational sessions for attendees: the ‘Top Issues in Health Care’ with Cameron Cox, III, and ‘Knowing the Quality of Your Code Assignment,’ with Lee Ford.
Future Multi-Payer Expos are scheduled in:

  • Winston-Salem on May 23, 8 am to 1 pm
  • Asheville on July 18, 8 am to 1 pm
  • Wilmington on Sept. 19,  8 am to 1 pm

Details on exact locations are still being finalized. Watch the NCMS Bulletin for updates.
