The ASC guide to navigating the future of reimbursement

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm CT (2:00pm - 3:00pm ET) 

Changes in the healthcare and reimbursement landscape are creating new opportunities for ambulatory surgery centers to improve financial performance, while advancing safety and quality of patient care. In this webinar, Marilyn Denegre-Rumbin will share her health policy, payer and reimbursement expertise to help ASCs successfully navigate this changing and challenging environment.

Marilyn will discuss how alternate payment models (such as value-based purchasing and shared savings), a shifting focus on payer mix and patient demographics—and the expansion of Medicaid Managed Care—are converging to create a new window of opportunity for ASCs. Plus, she will share specific strategies for achieving success, despite persistent uncertainty in the healthcare world.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss how industry-wide healthcare and reimbursement trends impact ASCs.
  • Describe why ASCs should focus on commercial payers for contracting opportunities.
  • Identify the factors that determine reimbursement in a value-based contract.
  • Explain how the Value-Based Readiness Assessment for ASCs works.
  • Outline the rudiments for ASC success today.
