First things first: know how you’ll get paid before service is delivered.
As payment liability tilts from payers to patients, it’s likely your hospital is struggling to collect full and prompt payments. Higher deductibles are making it harder for your patients to pay. Hospitals that don’t identify a patient’s ability and willingness to pay before the delivery of services will write off more and more bad debt every year.
Financial assistance screening can help.
The key to financial survival comes with understanding. When you intuit a patient’s financial circumstances you can determine the best course of action to support payment. AccuReg Financial Assistance Screening uses predictive technology to assess the patient’s propensity to pay and guides your patient access team in how to handle the account in compliance with your hospital’s financial assistance policies. It helps the registrar determine whether to attempt to collect the patient’s payment, offer a payment plan, convert to charity care or offer financial assistance.
