The self-pay revenue cycle is an integral part of a hospital’s financial operations, and it is imperative that hospital financial decision makers understand the various facets of the Act and the impact they will have.
Lawrence, Kansas (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
As part of ongoing efforts to inform and educate its clients and industry members on self-pay revenue cycle, The Midland Group released its latest whitepaper “The Impact of PPACA on the Self-Pay Revenue Cycle.” The paper – hosted on the company’s website – highlights the wide-ranging impact the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has on the healthcare industry, which will continue to change as states and the federal government make adjustments to the law.
“As HHS continues to modify and release parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, we feel it’s our duty to keep our clients informed,” said Roger McCollister, CEO of The Midland Group and author of the whitepaper. “The self-pay revenue cycle is an integral part of a hospital’s financial operations, and it is imperative that hospital financial decision makers understand the various facets of the Act and the impact they will have.”
The paper includes four major areas that are impacted by the law: payment options and non-profits, presumptive eligibility, certified application counselors, and Medicaid expansion. Non-profits will learn how to stay on top of collections while ensuring compliance within the law. It also highlights how hospitals can ensure coverage in the new age of presumptive eligibility and Medicaid – helping registration departments use best practices when enrolling new patients.
