Why Should You Attend:
In past years reimbursement was not an issue for case management staff. The Payment was based on volume and medical necessity that seemed more clearly understood. As healthcare reform has evolved, healthcare costs have escalated and the strategy of payers to ensure reimbursement only for quality, case management departments must understand the reimbursement process for the hospital and the post-acute care environment. More and more patients make decisions for healthcare providers based on their financial responsibility. This is true with nearly every benefit plan that a patient might have. To guide a patient in decision-making for care, the case management staff member must be able to discuss costs for the patient—whether they have Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, managed Medicaid, or a commercial payment source. Even the unfunded patient has choices to make.
