ANNUAL REVENUE CYCLE INSTITUTE
This Institute includes:Internal Revenue Code 501r Activity Update: All hospitals will be required to have fully implemented IRC 501r by the end of the year. IRS audit activity has already started in areas that were to have been in place in the early phases of IRC 501r implementation. Learn more about those activities and what you should be aware of.Pricing Transparency: The constructs of the U.S. healthcare system are complex, not consumer friendly, and constantly changing. Pricing is one area that is equally confusing and complex to both the consumers of care and the systems providing that care. Pricing transparency was a movement that started many years ago when consumers and the media began pressuring providers to make sense out of their bills and cost of care. The proverbial examples of the $10 aspirin continue to plague the industry. Consumers and emerging competitors demand hospitals adopt rational price structures.This session discusses the journey of healthcare pricing and the successes and failures of providers. We’ll review methodologies, considerations, and processes to transform an organization’s reimbursement and pricing methodologies, as well as the implications that emerging reimbursement models will have on our current charge structures.The presentation will:
