This CLE webinar will guide healthcare counsel on how healthcare providers, practices, and health systems can better align their organization and operations to maximize reimbursement. The panel will discuss key factors to be weighed in the decision-making, including Medicare, Medicaid, commercial payers, and 340B considerations. The panel will examine several scenarios, such as ambulatory care services, critical access hospitals, rural health clinics, and best practices for optimizing organization and operations to maximize reimbursement.

Description

Hospitals and health systems are often looking to expand their services through options such as adding new locations or ambulatory care services. However, federal and state regulations may limit the ability to add new facilities. Consequently, health systems must balance these imitations that can lower payments against other hospital programs, such as 340B, which could be the primary force behind some decisions made by the health system.

Medicare is often the major driver for some of these strategies, but it is not the only one. Hospitals and health systems also take Medicaid, commercial payers, and 340B into consideration. It is critical for hospitals and health systems and their counsel to understand how the decision-making as to organization and operation can make a significant difference in financial and strategic outcomes.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the existing payment systems and how healthcare providers, practices, and health systems can better align their organization and operations to maximize reimbursement. The panel will discuss key factors to be weighed in the decision-making, including Medicare, Medicaid, commercial payers, and 340B considerations. The panel will examine several scenarios, such as ambulatory care services, critical access hospitals, rural health clinics, and best practices for optimizing organization and operations to maximize reimbursement.
