Hospitals adjusting billing and collections practices to meet ACA changes
from Healthcare Finance News
The Affordable Care Act has created some new realities for hospitals when it comes to billing and collecting from patients. Hospitals are adjusting by instituting a variety of processes. At Omaha's Children's Hospital & Medical Center, the focus is on helping those newly insured under the ACA navigate their responsibilities. In many cases, hospital staff are working with patients who never had insurance before and who may not understand the product they purchased on the exchanges, said Brian Argo, the hospital's vice president and chief revenue officer.
