AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

Here is some information about the impact of the Affordable Care Act. While we have known the “rules” for some time, hospitals are now beginning to feel the impact in the form of revenue penalties and the demand to provide care differently than in the past. Re-admission penalties are a current target and most thought leaders expect more to come.

If you have innovative thoughts about how hospital chief financial officers, revenue cycle professionals and others can mitigate or minimize the impact of ACA mandates, please share.
