Big changes for 2020
The year 2020 will be forever infamous as the year of the global pandemic. A year that turned traditional methods of healthcare delivery on its head. Government payers loosened up healthcare delivery and regulatory constraints. Federal and state agencies threw funds to providers with minimal or vague guidance on deciphering the appropriate direction and disbursement of those funds. Spoiler alert, relaxed rules coupled with fast money comes with catches – as it should. Providers can expect increased scrutiny and intense oversight of their coding, billing, and spending practices. And not only in areas related to pandemic help, but in every aspect of their business practices.
