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.

  • 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
