Hospital Fee Program Updates Webinar

Date: September 6, 2019
Time: 10:00 – 11:30 a.m., Pacific Time



Effective July 1, 2019, hospitals receiving managed care supplemental payments will be subject to new Network Provider requirements under the new Hospital Fee Program VI.  

Historically, hospitals received all of their managed care supplemental payments under what CMS refers to now as a “pass-through” mechanism. Under the new federal rules, roughly half of the Hospital Fee Program VI supplemental payments will now be transitioned to a “directed payments” mechanism. Further, to be eligible to receive directed payments hospitals must be a Network Provider. Do your existing contracts meet the new requirements?

Don’t be caught off guard
Join us for this members-only webinar to make sure you are up-to-date on the latest changes to the Hospital Fee Program and how these may impact your hospital’s reimbursement. Participants will gain a clear understanding of the new Network Provider requirements, review the structure for the new Hospital Fee Program VI,  receive trouble shooting tips for discrepancies of the encounter data files and more.

There is no fee for this CHA members-only webinar; however, registration is required. 

Recommended for: Chief executive officers, chief financial officers, chief operating officers, reimbursement directors, patient financial services directors, revenue cycle directors, controllers, managed care directors, compliance officers, in-house legal counsel and financial consultants.
