How Hospitals Can Get Involved in Health Insurance Exchanges
Vice President, Operations

According to the American Hospital Association, uncompensated care has cost provider organizations more than $413 billion since 2000. It's no secret that providers continue to struggle with uncompensated care costs. According to U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, more than 7 million Americans signed up for healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) during the 2014 enrollment period. How will provider organizations manage the remaining 42 million who elected to pay the individual penalty, those who will be unable to pay the high deductibles commonly associated with exchange plans, and the undocumented workers who will continue to seek care?
All of these scenarios create an equally high risk for contributing to the provider organization's uncompensated care load. During this webinar, you'll hear how organizations are providing patient assistance to the underinsured and those who remain uninsured, while minimizing disruptions in cash flow.
After This Webinar You’ll Be Able To:
- Navigate uncompensated care under the ACA.
- Create a plan for minimizing disruptions to cash flow while providing quality patient service.
- Create an action plan for 2015 enrollment, which will begin Nov. 15, 2014.
