Healthcare Reimbursement
Payment Methodologies
This assignment has two steps: Step 1 with a preview & final review must be completed prior to performing Step 2. Step 2 has two scenarios. Use a minimum of 5 resources on this assignment.
STEP 1: Research and analyze the following payment methodologies:
• Capitation
• Prospective Payment Systems (Identify at least 5 types)
Create a visual tool (like a chart, matrix, grid) using a software program to help you understand and identify the following:
• Define every payment methodology
• History of each
• Which payers use it which methods
• What governing body or organization may be involved in managing it
• Which type(s) of healthcare setting it is utilized
(Visual tools may be: Tables, Charts, Diagrams, Mind Maps, etc.) The visual tool is to be clearly defined, readable, professional appearing and fit on 1-2 pages. **This will be an excellent reference to assist you in studying for the CCA or RHIT Exam or preparing for a job interview!
Submit Step 1 to instructor for review prior to working on Step 2. (End of Module 3)
Step 1 is worth 25 points, based on feedback from the instructor, corrections are to be made and resubmitted for final review prior to Step 2.
Final Review is due at the end of Module 4.

STEP 2: Perform presentations on scenarios A & B.
Scenario A: Physician Group
The independent physician group you work for are starting to renegotiate their insurance contracts with various commercial plans and want to understand the various payment methodologies: Capitation, RBRVS and a prospective payment system that would benefit an independent physician group.
Create a PowerPoint presentation for the physicians that includes the following:
o Definition of each payment method
o Compare and contrast the pro’s and con’s of each
o Provide examples of how they may be paid for the following items:
? Office Visits/Procedures (Provide 2-3 E&M CPT codes)
? Lab tests (Provide 2-3 CPT codes)
? Injections – ie: vaccine or injectable medications (Provide 2-3 CPT / HCPCS codes)
In the PowerPoint you must include:
o what your clinic charge is for the examples provided above
o what the reimbursement may be based on the payment methodology chosen
o Proposal of what methodology they should use for reimbursement of the above examples and why

Scenario B: Nursing Home
The nursing home you are recently hired at has a new nursing home administrator. The administrator would you like you to explain the components of the Resident Instruction Tool (RAI); and how it affects the RUG reimbursement the facility receives.
In a separate PowerPoint geared toward the NH Administrator and staff, explain what encompasses a RUG and how often it is reported to CMS. Formulate a step-by-step plan for the staff to report the RUG’s on the required dates of the patient stay.
Resources: Research should be based on reputable sources, not Wikipedia. Resources include government agencies, Wisconsin Part B insurance provider, commercial payers, professional agencies such as AMA, AHIMA, etc. You may also use the FVTC HIT program library links provided online.
The PowerPoints should have sources noted in APA Reference Style on the final page.
Step 2 (two Powerpoints) is worth 25 points. Step 2 is due at the end of Module 6.
