Top Medicare Reimbursement Opportunities Post COVID: May 17

Illinois hospitals continue to face unprecedented fiscal challenges caused or exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Amid waning COVID-related federal funding, significant staff turnover and rising costs, it is more important than ever for healthcare finance leaders to identify opportunities for additional reimbursement. While some things post-pandemic are out of our control, recent changes to wage index factors, IME/GME reimbursement, organ transplants and other areas present opportunities for hospitals to enhance reimbursement.

This webinar will assist IHA members in understanding key changes to the regulatory landscape that can offer improved reimbursement opportunities. Particular attention will be paid to Medicare wage index opportunities that will help hospitals address contract labor expenses.
