Summary

Medicaid is at risk for a dramatic restructuring. The current American Health Care Act (AHCA) proposal calls for changes that will have a monumental impact on the U.S. healthcare system. Experts forecast significant shifts in federal funding to control state spending, the abolishment of retro Medicaid, and extreme variation in eligibility processes among states. Changes to Medicaid expansion could increase uncompensated care and the uninsured rate.

During this webinar, you will learn the specific details about these and other emerging trends, including their potential to affect hospital finances and infrastructure, as well as patient coverage, access and debt. You will also identify your organization’s strengths and weaknesses, while mapping out the three critical steps you must take to prepare for a new Medicaid program.

After This Webinar You’ll Be Able To:

 
  • Describe the major Medicaid trends in play and their challenges to your organization.
  • Assess new Medicaid funding plans, such as per capita and block grants, and their impact on hospital bad debt, charity care and patient debt.
  • Determine your readiness for imminent Medicaid changes and create a plan for preparing leadership, education, operations and Medicaid eligibility teams.
  • Develop proactive processes to identify and assist patients who are part of the expansion population as Medicaid changes occur.
