The CFO Collaborative provides an on-going networking opportunity for hospital and nursing home financial leaders. The Collaborative allows them to collaborate on solutions, share knowledge, identify ways to save money, and increase their influence when problems arise. The group meets face-to-face and by teleconference/webinar to identify priorities for improving the operational and financial performance of hospitals in Alaska.
Hospital Presumptive Eligibility – Presumptive Eligibility MOU
Hospitals can temporarily and immediately enroll patients and their families in Medicaid if it appears they are eligible. This can be done quickly, without having to wait for a full eligibility determination from the state. A patient provides some basic information about his or her individual or family income and household size, and if the patient or family appears likely to be eligible for Medicaid based on this information, a hospital can determine the individual or family to be “presumptively eligible” for Medicaid. The hospital will get paid for the services provided just as though the patient were already enrolled in Medicaid.
