Jason Newfield and Justin Frankel spoke with publisher Nancy Collins for a Sound Practice Podcast that followed their article in the January/February issue of The Journal of Medical Practice Management.   Frankel & Newfield  discussed the meaning of “dual occupation” in the claims process, the importance of specialty language, common misconceptions about the specialty letter, the definition of residual claims and why they matter, opportunities and pitfalls to backdating of claims, and the major misconceptions surrounding group disability policies, private policies and association policies.
