The public health system is transforming due to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the decline in federal and state discretionary funds. Public health departments have started to seek alternative sources of revenue to continue providing services in their community. Many health departments are exploring billing for clinical services provided and are trying to become a contracted in-network provider with health plans.
The webinar “Becoming an In-Network Provider: The Health Department Perspective” is a 60-minute presentation where speakers from Mississippi, New York, and North Dakota will share their contracting experiences. Attendees will learn about contracting processes for health departments; strategies to address barriers when contracting with third-party payers; and what resources are available in NACCHO’s Billing for Clinical Services Toolkit.
