Occasionally, I will get an email or a phone call from a VP of Revenue Cycle or a hospital CBO Manager asking me to help them find their state’s workers’ compensation fee schedule. I do my best to point them in the right direction, but more often than not I will try and better understand what their underlying question about work comp really is, as it is frequently NOT found in the fee schedule. That said, fee schedules are a good starting point for hospitals eager to learn more about their expected work comp reimbursement.

Most hospitals that I encounter have at least a few Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Network contracts that include workers’ compensation. Some have dozens. These contracts range from super simple 1-page Letters of Agreement, to massively complex multi-line managed care agreements. Hospitals typically devote staff to developing and managing these contracts, but just as is true with Group Health or Commercial contracts, work comp contracts have the same propensity for errors and abuse and left unchecked these blunders could cost hospitals dearly.
As the Thanksgiving holiday rapidly approaches, it’s a time for us individually to reflect on our blessings and remember what we are thankful for. Like you, I will take the time to do that in the coming days. If individuals can be thankful, why can’t companies be thankful too? Here are four things EnableComp is grateful for this Thanksgiving.

One of the most fun filled weeks of the year is Revenue Services Week. This is an entire week devoted to our Revenue Services team that work hard all year long to make the company successful.
It’s no secret that hospitals are continuously battling thin margins by working to put the correct partnerships, processes and systems in place to avoid the big misses. The players on the PGA Tour are constantly facing the same battles. Finding the right partners to help lower the margin of error each performance year is key.
