WASHINGTON, D.C., Oct. 31, 2012—The “Collection of Co-Payments: Financial Lifeline for the HME Supplier” webinar by Jeffrey S. Baird will be offered November 13 from 2:30–4:00 p.m. ET. At the end of the day, an HME provider cannot be dependent on Medicare for the lion’s share of its revenue. Medicare is broke... it went broke taking care of the “Greatest Generation.” There is no way that Medicare can handle the approaching tsunami of 78 million Baby Boomers. The Medicare money spigot is contracting and the successful HME provider must look to other sources of revenue. One of the most important sources of revenue is the collection of co-payments.

Participants will: discuss what the law requires regarding the collection of co-payments from Medicare beneficiaries and from patients covered by commercial insurance; learn what the provider's options are when the patients says “I am broke and I cannot pay”; and learn what the provider's options are when the patient dies, becomes disabled, or files bankruptcy.
