Chicago – February 5, 2014 – The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) today announced that, following rigorous review, Resource Corporation of America (RCA) has once again achieved the "Peer Reviewed by HFMA®" standard for its Third-Party Self-Pay Eligibility Services.

RCA offers hospital clients onsite third party eligibility services for self-pay patients who qualify for any government programs designed to assist in paying for medical bills (e.g. Medicaid, SSI, VVC, A&D, etc.). Each patient is assisted in the application process and RCA acts as liaison between the patient and the government agencies throughout the entire process from application through certification. All hospital clients are provided with customized reporting functions and onsite staff that handle all hospital-specific accounts. RCA also provides patient tracking methods, fair hearing representation, patient appointment assistance, transportation assistance and in-depth patient support.

“RCA is honored to receive the Peer Review designation by HFMA for our Third-Party Self-Pay Eligibility services for the fourth consecutive year,” said Frank Dominguez, COO of RCA. “RCA is committed to being the go-to resource for services that convert a hospital’s at-risk dollars into revenue and this recognition continues to confirm that commitment."

HFMA's Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective third party evaluation of products and services used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, eleven-step process includes a Peer Review panel review comprised of current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts. Peer Review status of the product or service and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.

"We’re pleased to have Resource Corporation of America renew their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation," says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. "The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed product or service meets an objective third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value."
