HOT TOPICS AND NEWS FLASH BULLETINS

In order to provide ongoing communication to network providers, we distribute Hot Topics on a regular basis. Hot Topics is a bulletin that provides information about current healthcare and billing issues along with regulatory requirements for each of our product lines. We also publish the News Flash bulletin when issues come up that are time-sensitive and cannot wait until the next scheduled issue of Hot Topics.
