When was the last time you took a good look at your patient collections processes? Things have been changing in recent years, and they continue to do so in 2014. Patients are paying as much as 30% of their healthcare costs today out of pocket. While many preventive care services are now covered, there are a lot of people who now have higher deductible plans and higher copays. As a result, having a strong program for effective patient collections is more crucial than ever.

In this webinar, patient collections expert Mary Pat Whaley offers a review of the basics and the best practices for improving patient collections. You’ll learn:

  • How to create and use a payer matrix
  • The value of eligibility and benefits information
  • Why the financial policy is the best patient collection tool you have
  • The role of a credit card on file program in patient collections

Who should attend? Practice managers, billing managers, billing and front desk staff, and healthcare providers who are interested in improving patient collections and reducing A/R.
