The development of provider compensation strategies is a challenge for all providers. The challenge becomes more complicated when the providers operate in a Rural Health Clinic. This presentation will provide strategies to address both the needs to provide a market-based compensation package to attract providers and the organizational needs to obtain the appropriate cost-based reimbursement for these services.
(This presentation provides an update on key Medicare reimbursement areas of concern and areas of opportunity. It will touch on items such as Wage Index, Bad Debts, DSH, S-10, Low Volume Appeals and other areas of significant reimbursement payments. The presentation is intended to provide the attendee with specific areas that their facility should focus on when preparing and reviewing their Medicare Cost Report.)
- Discuss strategies for developing market-based compensation packages for Rural Health Clinic providers.
- Review additional strategies to promote achievement of population health objectives.
- Analyze alternative compensations structures to potentially enhance Rural Health Clinic reimbursement for provider compensation costs.
