As the number of people seeking services increases, so too will the number of patients for whom no insurance or social safety net exists. The strain of uncompensated care on healthcare institutions is already showing up, as evidenced by AHA’s Annual Survey of Hospitals, which noted a rise of $3.4 billion from 2015 to 2016.

Uncompensated care is a growing risk to institutions and this program covers implications of Medicare Uncompensated care strategies and the connections to Medicare cost reporting and the revenue cycle. Learn how to leverage different sources of information to meet reporting and reimbursement needs related to uncompensated care cost. This course will explore strategies in reporting S-10, DSH data and Medicare Bad Debts for proper reporting and reimbursement of uncompensated care. The program will explore the driving forces for Uncompensated Care cost reporting and reimbursement.
