This program will provide a foundation of knowledge and understanding of the DRG system used as the structure for reimbursement under the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Included in this will be a review of the DRG relative weights, case mix index and expected lengths of stay. Medical record coding will be explained in the context of how hospitals get reimbursed.  This will be followed by a discussion of managed care and managed care contracting as well as the various managed care products currently on the market.   The program will conclude with a discussion on bundled payments and what case management professionals need to know in order to assist their organizations in controlling cost and length of stay in a bundled payment environment where patients may access care and use resources at any touch point on the continuum.
Why Attend?
As case management professionals, we work with patients who may fall into one or more of the many combinations of healthcare reimbursement in play today, from government payers such as Medicare and Medicaid, to managed care and bundled payments. Among our roles is included the responsibility of controlling the cost and length of stay. Therefore we must be up-to-date on each and every payment scheme we may come in contact with.  In addition, we are advocates for our patients and families and we must be able to teach and explain to them how the various payment sources will impact on them as well. Healthcare reimbursement knowledge is critical to your success as a case management professional.   This webinar will bring you up to speed on what you need to know to be successful in your role as an RN Case Manager or Social Worker.
