Draft Guidelines for Medical Debt Resolution
HFMA has released draft guidelines for fair resolution of the patient portion of medical bills.
These guidelines were developed by HFMA and the Association of Credit and Collection Professionals (ACA, International) with a task force representing patient advocates, revenue cycle leaders, and collections agencies. The task force is sponsored by State Collection Service, Connance, and Experian. The guidelines provide step-by-step actions to resolve patient accounts after patient care has been provided.
