Free Webinar January 26th - Next Generation PFS 
Free Webinar: Next Generation PFS:  Single Billing Office
Thursday,  January 26th 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Speaker:  Terri Meier, CHFP, CSMC, CSBI

Please join us for this FREE webinar. This session will review a Single Billing Office strategy and the benefits and risks associated with implementation.
As reimbursement continues to decline - efficiencies are expected by you, your patients and the healthcare industry.  Combining staff into a Single Self-Pay Billing Office serves to not only improve efficiencies in self-pay billing, payment posting and customer service; but allows for a more seamless patient experience.   Even though these is a lot of work that goes into consolidating your office - it is well worth it in the end.

A new administration and Congress promises to bring significant changes to health care. Potential changes to coverage, outcomes based payment, and payment rates will impact the strategies of hospitals, physicians, and health plans. This session will help participants prepare for these changes by discussing the implications of:
  • A "repeal and replacement" of the Affordable Care Act
  •  Payment cuts to hospitals, post-acute care providers, and physicians
  •  Changes to the Medicare benefit design
  •  Continued adoption of outcome based payment models
