HealthTech Offers New Medicaid Retroactive Eligibility Service

Franklin, TN Jan 1, 2011 — HealthTech today announced it is offering Medicaid Retroactive Eligibility Services for hospitals that are challenged with reimbursement of healthcare services for self-pay patients.
HealthTech’s Eligibility Service provides a retroactive review of self-pay patients for Medicare or other third-party payment source through one of its data partners. If a patient has qualified to receive financial assistance during the same time frame, the hospital can resubmit claims for back payments.
“We are excited to offer this new service to our clients,” said Derek Morkel, HealthTech CEO and President. “It can be very beneficial especially since there is a growing number of self-pay patients visiting community hospitals every year. It is another way we can help hospitals improve their revenue cycle and overall financial stability.”
