Enhancing Self-Pay Collections in the Age of High-Deductible Health Insurance

 

Increasingly, patients have high deductible health insurance plans, a trend that will only increase in the foreseeable future. By definition, deductible self-pay fees are generated from accounts where the guarantor has health insurance, placing these accounts in a category that should theoretically be much more collectible than self-pay at registration accounts, which typically have very low collection rates. Unlike office practices, where co-pays and deductibles are collected at the time of service, emergency physician service accounts with deductible self-pay amounts are identified only after the insurance claim has been submitted. This 45-minute webinar will address the following topics:
  • Review of revisions in the hospital’s IT system of all self-pay accounts prior to generation of the first patient statement.
  • Greater use of informational material at the time of ED service.
  • Collection of email addresses and cell phone numbers at the time of ED registration.
  • Institution of patient relationship programs.
  • Outbound phone programs.
  • Web portal simplicity.
  • Smart phone payment portal.
  • Enhanced use of an electronic clearinghouse.
  • Re-evaluation of patient statements.
  • Early out programs.
