Of course charity care is still part of your mission. Yet in today’s environment, we all agree that providers can no longer afford the ever-increasing levels of uncompensated care. While patient financial assistance programs are available, converting them to revenue is like trying to navigate a complicated maze without GPS.
Yes, you have people, process and maybe even some technology in place. Sometimes reimbursement is achieved.
But something is still missing.
Many patients leave... leave because care is complete. But an understanding of the financial responsibilities is not complete. They leave before that part of the encounter can be made clear.
And so you plummet off Cooperation Cliff; where patient cooperation drops by 33%*... also diminishing the probability of reimbursement.
