Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals and health systems have experienced significant revenue declines due to cancelled surgeries and are looking to the revenue cycle to maintain cash flow. The pandemic has also resulted in new coding and billing requirements for telemedicine and other services, an increase in the number of uninsured patients, and changes in regulatory requirements in a number of areas as a result of blanket waivers. Additionally, cybersecurity risks have increased due to the migration of revenue cycle staff to a work-from-home environment and the accelerated implementation of telemedicine. These factors have combined to create new and increased risks for the revenue cycle function. This webinar will provide practical guidance on identifying and auditing these new and increased revenue cycle risks.
Following this discussion, participants will be able to:
1. Explain the component parts of the revenue cycle and their functions.
2. Describe the areas of impact of COVID-19 on the revenue cycle and auditable risks.
3. Design and execute audit testing to mitigate revenue cycle risks related to the impact of COVID-19.
4. Identify and locate COVID-19 related regulatory guidance.
