The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has taken on a more visible role in health care. A great deal of change has transpired to improve patient safety and implementation of additional quality metrics.
The new health care reform has begun to change the fees/structure of Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement for health care services.
For this assignment, write a narrative presentation that you will deliver to the members of your organization’s board of trustees on how the new reimbursement structure will impact the organization’s revenue structure. In your presentation, address the following questions:
- Why did CMS become more involved in the reimbursement component of health care? How does this involvement impact health care organizations?
- What tools can be implemented to ensure that an organization is meeting the policies and procedures set forth by CMS?
- Identify three tools from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website that are helpful to achieving the goals set forth by your organization.
