The Patient is the New Payer:
Positioning your revenue cycle for successful patient financial engagement
Thursday, August 17
12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. MDT / 11:00-12:00 p.m. AZ time
With the rising cost of health care, and the increased financial burden to patients as a result of cost shifting with HDHPs, patients are the new payer. Patients are increasingly becoming a source of bad debt, as the patient pays down their climbing deductible, or seeks coverage through the legislative disruption. This session will look at the increased risk for uncompensated care and increased cost to collect, as hospitals are collecting more from patients than ever.
