  • Understand program requirements.
  • Evaluate regulatory compliance.
  • Determine correct Medicare billing and reimbursement submissions.

Legislative Changes That Will Impact Your Facilities

Presenter: Nathan Baugh, Director, NARHC

Do you want your RHC to operate better tomorrow than it is today? Understanding how the market is changing and where new opportunities exist will help you build strategies that are proactive rather than reactive. This session will focus on national rural policy matters impacting RHCs, as well as current industry trends.

Learning Objectives

  • Apply your understanding of market trends to the strategic growth of your RHC.
  • Understand how legislative changes impact your facility.

Medicare Billing for Rural Health Clinics

Learning Objectives

  • Understand program requirements.
  • Evaluate regulatory compliance.
  • Determine correct Medicare billing and reimbursement submissions.

Medicare Cost Report Overview

Presenters: Kathi Krueger, CPA, and Josh Boyle, CPA

How confident are you that your facility’s cost report is accurate? Does it include easily missed services that could increase your reimbursement? This session will focus on advanced topics related to Medicare RHC cost reporting and includes several real-life examples of common cost reporting inaccuracies and opportunities for improvement.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand accounting for non-RHC activities and carve-outs.
