Medicare Bad Debt Recovery Reporting

Bad debt does not have to be a closed case. BKD National Health Care Group can help your organization identify, capture, report and recoup Medicare bad debt reimbursement related to inpatient, outpatient and crossover services. Our recovery solutions apply retrospectively to open and re-openable cost reporting years, concurrently to Medicare log preparation and prospectively through process improvements.

BKD’s process, combined with Medicare audit and patient accounting experience, utilizes provider- and fiscal intermediary-source patient data, including Provider Summary Report (PSR), Medicare and Medicaid remittance data, collection agency data and hospital-specific policies and procedures.

Using these resources, our CPAs and advisors can identify coinsurance and deductible dollars that qualify for Medicare reimbursement. We accumulate, organize and document the support to substantiate patient accounts. The result:  You have the information to create and maintain an accurate Medicare bad debt log.

McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital

“The BKD Corporate Finance team did an excellent job representing the financial interest of McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital in the transaction. The Board of the city-owned, not-for-profit hospital had a fiduciary duty to ensure long-term access to health care in the community. Although we knew who the likely party was going to be in the transaction, BKDCF used their expertise in health care transactions to negotiate the financial components of the transaction from a position of strength. The BKDCF team did an excellent job managing the process, helping to achieve an outcome that was approved unanimously by the Board."
