Hospital Charity Care AdvantageSM
U.S. hospitals’ uncompensated care costs have increased by 6% annually in recent years, reaching $39.3 billion in 2010, according to the American Hospital Association. Projections suggest these costs could reach $44 billion in 2013—of which charity care costs will comprise about $20 billion. No surprise that a growing percentage of accounts are being referred to internal charity care—and becoming increasingly burdensome for hospitals to manage.
Human Arc offers two solutions to help hospitals address this growing challenge.
Charity Care Advantage utilizes Human Arc’s specialists to screen your potential charity care accounts for eligibility based on your program’s guidelines.
If you’d prefer to keep charity care screening in house, Human Arc’s IQualify technology helps you optimize your processes for optimal results. Learn more.
