Ontario System‘s Rozanne Andersen has some compelling points to make about the ways healthcare providers and collection agencies can partner together in the face of Medicare reimbursement cuts.
Healthcare providers, Andersen suggests, are getting squeezed from every direction, but by working in concert with collection agency partners, they can squeeze back.
Third-party payors are reducing the amounts they will pay for services; hospital employees are amplifying their demands for higher pay and more benefits; the ever-increasing cost of equipment, pharmaceuticals, and supplies shows no sign of abating; costs associated with regulatory compliance are mushrooming; and as if that is not enough to drive any revenue cycle professional crazy, beginning in January of 2013, providers will begin to feel the effects of changes to the Medicare reimbursement program.
And yet, in the midst of all of these obstacles, there are still opportunities for revenue success. Understanding the impact the changes in the Medicare reimbursement program will have on providers and the corresponding opportunity this change represents is the first step in becoming a part of the solution — and the focus of this whitepaper from insidePatientFinance.com and Ontario Systems.
