Healthcare Reimbursement and Financing
Hospital and health system financing and reimbursement is complex and affects access to care in communities across Michigan. The MHA works on behalf of its members to achieve fair and adequate healthcare funding, and also helps hospitals communicate financial issues to the communities they serve.
Federal and State Hospital Finance Issues
The MHA monitors and engages with federal and state agencies that develop financing rules that direct hospital payments. These include payments for inpatient and outpatient services, value-based payments and fee-for-service payments. The MHA provides comments on key policy issues that impact the entire membership and/or significant subsets of the Michigan hospital community. MHA comments are shared with the membership via Monday Report and direct email communications to assist members in developing their own comments to governmental agencies.
Medicare Advantage Enrollment
The MHA shares Medicare Advantage enrollment reports on a quarterly basis with membership.
