Improving Outcomes in Revenue Cycle Management. Module F. Medica
Medicaid—the federal program that that serves many people with low incomes, special needs or disabilities—is one of the largest public programs in the U.S. This module begins by detailing which populations are eligible for Medicaid, and then explores how different factors (such as state regulations and the Affordable Care Act) have affected Medicaid. Last, it looks at two main challenges that can involve Medicaid: coordinating care when many providers do not accept Medicaid, and coordinating temporary Medicaid for patients who have fallen through the “safety net” of both Medicare and Medicaid.
