Medical Receivables

Medical receivables are the amounts owed by third-party payers to healthcare providers. The party owing the money can be commercial insurance companies, HMOs, Medicare and Medicaid, or patients (if there is an outstanding balance after insurance or another payer has paid its portion).

Medical receivables are usually payable 60 to 120 days after service is rendered, though some reimbursements lag further behind, creating cash flow issues for healthcare providers, who typically need to pay expenses in a shorter time frame.

In fact, interest accrued from the date of the consumer’s purchase and was charged if the balance was not paid in full before the promotional period ended. Turns out this is a lesson in training, monitoring, and UDAAP violations.
