Government has been busy this year. There’s been a lot of activity at federal and state levels that will impact how hospitals are reimbursed and also change the way we care for patients. New this year: NOTICE Act; CJR program and MACRA. Covered California is actively working to tie payment to outcomes, while Medi-Cal is considering implementing readmission measures. Plus, two important ballot initiatives have the potential to significantly impact your hospital’s bottom line.
Hospitals can play an important role in reducing the number of uninsured through the Hospital Presumptive Eligibility (HPE) program. The HPE program will allow all hospital Medi-Cal providers — including any clinic on a hospital’s license — to provide potentially-eligible individuals with temporary, full-scope Medi-Cal benefits.
