Self Pay Receivables Management E-mail

The ChallengeImage

The uninsured and underinsured are reaching all time highs; hospitals can not rely on the collection agency alone to collect these receivable dollars. Many of these dollars represent the deductibles, co-pays, and out of pocket expenses due to limited coverage, or no coverage. The patient responsible balances have become more and more difficult to collect. This is due to the investment of more manpower to do the needed telephone contacts, responses to the array of correspondence, incoming telephone inquiries and walk-ins. The returned mail from the statement mailings also needs to be reviewed, with the necessary actions to be taken to update the patients’ accounts.
