Event details

According to the American Hospital Association, hospitals have provided nearly $745 billion in uncompensated care to patients since 2000 (nearly $21.6 billion in 2000, growing to $42.67 billion in 2020). Understanding and managing a hospital’s financials related to uncompensated care is a complex and time-consuming process when done right and a significant risk when done poorly. This webinar will present best practices to help maintain compliant Worksheet S-10 and Medicare bad debt (MBD) listings for cost report filing.

After attending this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Name recent regulatory requirements and describe the impacts they have had over the past year on uncompensated care filings
  • Discuss the “K-shape” trends between cost and reimbursement
  • Identify leading practices from top-performing health systems and assess how your current practices measure up
  • Assess if your current processes are “leaving money on the table” due to coding errors or mismanagement of legacy accounts
  • Recognize audit trends to look out for related to MBD and S-10

If you are still processing and managing your uncompensated care the way you did a year or two ago, you might be putting your reimbursements at risk and potentially missing out on opportunities to streamline and improve your filings.

Don’t miss this chance to see what a data-driven analysis of more than 1,600 hospitals has to say about what works and what doesn’t.

Who should participate?

Healthcare CEOs, CFOs, controllers, finance directors, VP and directors of finance and reimbursement, directors of patient accounting services, self-pay managers, net revenue managers, internal audit leaders, and any other related professionals in the healthcare industry
