Revenue Cycle & A/R Management Assistance
by Kimberly Wolverton Lackman

It is not what you bill – it is the reimbursement that you receive! Did you know Hemophilia Alliance (HA) offers Revenue Cycle & A/R Management Solutions that are included in your annual membership dues?

We lead and facilitate mutually beneficial dialogs between the HTC, Brokers, and Payers, including action items related to Amendments, Appeals, contract language clarification, high dollar escalations, individual Letters of Agreement resolution, and other complicated reimbursement matters. We assist with A/R analysis along with developing and enhancing HTC Revenue Cycle best practices.

We want to continue to expand on the revenue cycle management services offered; we need your input to determine additional ways we can help. At the end of May, we will be emailing members our Billing & Revenue Cycle Management Survey to gain a stronger understanding of your revenue cycle management processes, needs and issues. Please look for the Survey in your Inbox; we encourage you to respond so we may assess your needs and offer additional services. We will be holding technical assistance webinars on May 26th and June 8th. Survey responses will be due at the end of June.

Over the past 10 months, HA has helped member HTCs collect over $1.5 million in outstanding A/R. Please reach out to our Manager of Reimbursement & Payer Marketing, Kimberly Wolverton Lackman at kimberly@hemoalliance.org, to discuss how we may be of assistance. We work for you!
