Emdeon Announces Educational Presentations during HFMA's 2013 ANI
Sessions to tackle healthcare reform and related provider uncertainty
NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Emdeon Inc., a leading provider of healthcare revenue and payment cycle management and clinical information exchange solutions, today announced it will present a series of short, impactful educational sessions designed to offer insights to help providers navigate the uncertainty caused by healthcare reform.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is driving tremendous change in healthcare, creating new complexities for providers as they consider how to manage new eligibility and enrollment requirements and changes in reimbursement models. Processing approximately seven billion healthcare-related transactions in 2012, Emdeon's solutions can help hospitals, health systems and other healthcare providers prepare for the pending regulatory changes and maximize revenue while minimizing financial risk.
Emdeon will demonstrate its integrated revenue cycle solutions during the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) 2013 ANI conference in Orlando June 16-18, 2013 and present its educational sessions at booth 1801. The entire schedule of educational sessions is listed below:
Navigating ACA Eligibility and Benefits Enrollment for the Uninsured – Is Your Hospital Ready?
In this session, you will learn about the pending ACA changes, specific state requirements and how these issues will impact eligibility and enrollment. You will also get a preview of Emdeon's comprehensive ACA-focused Eligibility & Enrollment services which are designed to help maximize providers' revenue and minimize risk under the new ACA uninsured eligibility enrollment guidelines.
Recover Your Lost Revenue Now - Before You Adjust to New Reimbursement Models
The healthcare reform changes outlined in the ACA will benefit many of the currently uninsured and underinsured by expanding access to quality medical care. While this expansion may improve the health of many Americans, it may actually pose a risk for the financial health of providers by decreasing provider revenue from government payers. To offset this risk, providers should leverage technology-enabled solutions to find and collect lost revenue from wrongful denials, underpayments and late payments. In this session, you will learn how Emdeon Payment Integrity Services helped Lakeland Regional Medical Center with its revenue recovery program.
Streamlining Eligibility to Offset Reduced Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) Program Payments
To subsidize the cost of care provided to uninsured patients, many charitable and safety-net hospitals receive funds through Medicaid and Medicare DSH programs. Because the number of uninsured and underinsured will likely fall dramatically beginning in 2014 due to the ACA, the amount of DSH payments distributed to hospitals and health systems will also likely decrease. With this influx of newly eligible patients, hospitals need to streamline their eligibility and enrollment processes to improve collections for reimbursable care in order to offset possible reductions in DSH payments. In this session, you will learn how Gwinnett Medical Center, with Emdeon's help, has streamlined Medicaid eligibility and enrollment to help maximize revenue.
Preparing for the Medicaid Enrollee Eligible Explosion
With the revised Medicaid eligibility guidelines in the ACA, up to 15 million newly eligible enrollees will enter the healthcare system over the next few years. This session will explore resources available to help proactive and forward-thinking hospitals and health systems address the reimbursement risk associated with a dramatic increase of patients who are Medicaid eligible, but not enrolled. You will learn how Baptist Health System and Emdeon are working together to optimize eligibility verification and enrollment for qualified patients in preparation for ACA changes.
