Health Care Payment Reform Center

Health care providers face myriad regulations and industry issues. With costs and regulatory scrutiny both on the rise, organizations must closely monitor costs, revenues and risks. Add to this an aging population and more patients using Medicare and Medicaid services, and the task of successfully providing services can seem overwhelming.

BKD National Health Care Group advisors and professionals work with thousands of health care providers, including hospitals, long-term care centers, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, rural health clinics and other health care organizations nationwide. These providers depend on our health care consultants for assurance services, tax advice, financial and strategic planning, financing assistance, compliance issues and reimbursement services.

“BKD's value extends beyond the tangible deliverables. I can count on proactive ideas and actionable education. They anticipate our needs, offer helpful ideas and are the first to call with educational resources and advice when new opportunities or challenges emerge.”

Beacon Health Systems

“Year one with BKD not only met our expectations, it far exceeded them! We expected the first year to present several challenges – multiple plans, multiple payroll systems, vendor changes and late start to name a few. Even with the challenges (which BKD had no control of) it was an extremely smooth and efficient process – much better than our experiences with our former vendor.”

“BKD professionals help me look out for my organization’s best interests—they are almost an extension of my department. It’s about trust, and as a result, I can focus on my main responsibilities.”

“After having a long-term relationship with a Big Four Accounting firm, we had very high expectations for BKD right from the start. I’m happy to say that they’ve exceeded our expectations. BKD’s people from partner to staff are knowledgeable, professional and experienced in serving hospitals of our size and complexity. We have benefited significantly from their industry experience and technical knowledge. As promised, BKD has provided a high level of partner involvement and a consistent team of auditors and advisors who focus on the areas of our business that are material to our financials. They know Health Care and are reliable and responsive to our needs. Engaging BKD was the best decision we could have made. We truly value this relationship and are looking forward to working with BKD for a long time.”
