RISARC collaborated with Blue Shield of California on this seminar to share their in-depth understanding of what will be required to build a sustainable revenue infrastructure and improve payer/provider relations.

Departmental Collaboration

Now more than ever each department within a providers structure has to have a clearer working understanding of how each conduct their operations, particularly where it applies to dealing with payers and patients alike. They must also understand the intricacies of the health plans under Covered California and the coverages provided by participating payers such as Blue Shield of California.

In attendance are stakeholders in the Revenue Cycle process including: Directors of the Business Office, Admitting, VP of Revenue Cycle, Medical Records, Governmental Compliance and Patient Access.

Open exchange of ideas

Said Stephenson: Health coverage is now accessible and affordable for millions of Americans thanks to the Affordable Care Act. But the overwhelming successes of the ACA and other supportive legislation have created huge burdens on the administrative and financial protocols for most health care providers. We have created a popular forum for healthcare executives to discuss the latest healthcare benefits and protections that Americans are now entitled to by law.

Hospital Presumptive Eligibility

For years, states have had the option to use presumptive eligibility to connect pregnant women and children to Medi-Cal. Hospitals now have a unique new opportunity to connect patients to Medi-Cal, as long as they meet the states income guidelines for Hospital Presumptive Eligibility.

Hospitals in California can elect to make these determinationsregardless of whether the state expands Medi-Cal eligibility or exercises the existing ability to allow presumptive eligibility for other populations or settings. Hospitals must agree to abide by state policies and procedures. The choice to make HPE determinations rests with each individual hospital, not with the state.
