Hospital Reimbursement & Collections:
Legally, Ethically and Successfully Collecting Debt
December 7, 2018
9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
MHA Conference Center
With the continued changes to the healthcare delivery system, it is important that healthcare providers improve ways to collect deductibles and copays to ensure an organization’s financial viability. As deductibles and co-pays are getting higher, hospitals must explore all legal and ethical avenues to ensure appropriate collection. Adding to the complexity, hospitals must stay within federal and state specific laws and regulations regarding medical debt collection. This conference will feature an analysis of the current state of hospital revenue trends and opportunities to ensure revenue capture taught by top expert, Rich Bajner. We will then turn to a review of the federal and state requirements in a session taught by faculty from Verrill Dana. The program will help describe a framework within which hospitals can legally and successfully recoup debt owed to them.
