Example text

The challenge with using charges to drive the process is that the charge must somehow be converted into the appropriate cost to determine payment. 25 26 ◾ Cost-Based, Charge-Based, and Contractual Payment Systems Let us consider two simple case studies to illustrate the challenge with identifying costs for healthcare services. 1: Dr. Brown, a Sole Practitioner Dr. Brown is a sole practitioner in a small rural community. His clinic is about two blocks from a small rural hospital that is a CAH for Medicare purposes.

For instance, in the case of capitated payment systems, the generation of itemized statements and claims is to account for resource utilization as opposed to filing the claim for payment. In cost-based payment, claims may still be needed so that charges can be used to generate some sort of interim payment. The patient must be covered. The services rendered and items dispensed must be covered. The services are ordered and provided by qualified medical persons. The services are medically necessary.

These forms are sometimes quite lengthy, and gaining Medicare billing privileges can be challenging. Introduction ◾ 23 Note: In some cases, healthcare providers may have to file claims with third-party payers with whom they have no relationship. Technically, it is the patients who have the responsibility to make payment in these cases. However, as a practical matter, healthcare providers will generally file claims on behalf of their patients. Because there is no statutory or contractual relationship between the provider and the third-party payer, issues such as credentialing and the amount of payment that will be received can become significant issues.
