Mitigate Your Financial Risk: Focus on Eligibility

Today, patient eligibility is the key to a successful revenue cycle. Gone are the days of confirming eligibility from a member ID card. Not only can you confirm active coverage from the source (the payer, not the card), but you can discover coverage opportunities you never even thought possible. In fact, discovering patient coverage has become one of the single greatest ways for a practice to mitigate financial risk.

 

Patient eligibility also provides the opportunity to engage with your patient regarding their projected cost of care. Regularly checking patient eligibility aids your practice in population management -- and can help inform smarter workflows in your practice. Join our informative webinar featuring renowned speaker Elizabeth Woodcock to discover how your practice can benefit from focusing on patient eligibility.

 

After this FREE webinar, you will obtain 1 CEU and be able to:

  • Understand why it’s critical to provide accurate financial estimates before services occur.
  • Determine the value of a coverage sweep.
  • Recognize the evolution of eligibility and how to effectively execute a solution today for your practice.
