PYA was pleased to again sponsor the annual Polsinelli Health Care Reimbursement Summit. PYA has sponsored this series since its inception in 2016. The two-part virtual event offered in-depth and timely information focused exclusively on Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial reimbursement issues.
Among the presenters, PYA Principal Mike Nichols joined Colleen Faddick, a shareholder at Polsinelli, in the session “COVID and Reimbursement Issues.” They discussed the impact of testing, treatment, and COVID-19 vaccinations on reimbursement and cost reports, including:
- What’s new with testing — licensure, enrollment, payment, and enforcement.
- How providers should plan for vaccine mandate compliance.
- The impact of COVID-19 on hospital margins.
- The cost report treatment of COVID-19-related funds.
The two-day reimbursement summit agenda included these sessions:
Day One – Tuesday, March 8, 2022, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. CST
Day Two – Wednesday, March 9, 2022, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. CST
The Summit took place March 8-9, 2022. CPE* and CLE** credits were available for all eight sessions.
