Health Systems

Inspired to attain strategic and operational improvement in a constantly changing environment

Give a voice to your Medicare cost report.

Oftentimes, health systems think of cost reports as an exercise in compliance. But it can be more! Your Medicare cost report is your voice to policymakers, and it impacts current and future payment policies.


Together with your internal team, healthcare payment strategy consultants can explore opportunities to enhance reimbursement, while preparing and/or reviewing your cost reports and other payer arrangements. With the shift from volume to value-based reimbursement, it’s important to determine which alternative payment models and risk levels are right for you. Healthcare payment strategy consultants can help you develop customized strategies to maximize Medicare payments through:

 - Medicare Disproportionate Share Payment Analysis

 - Medicare Bad Debt Consulting

 - Wage Index and Occupational Mix Survey reviews

Eide Bailly’s healthcare payment strategy consultants are continually monitoring the latest Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement regulatory reforms and trends to keep our clients abreast of emerging issues. Former CFOs, reimbursement directors and revenue cycle personnel make up our team.  


Since accuracy of cost reporting is critical, our team conducts reviews in a thorough, two-step process. We also offer sustainable solutions with our train-the-trainer approach. We’ll keep you informed so you can impact policy.
