Description

Considerations for safety net providers in preparing for implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), such as third-party billing and restructuring of operations.

This foundation-funded project examined the potential impact of health care reform on safety net providers and activities for these agencies to undertake in order to prepare for implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Free clinics and other safety net providers, in general, do not accept third-party reimbursement and thus are not well-positioned to secure funding in the expanded Medicaid and private payer environment under ACA. Resources include suggestions and examples of ways for these safety net providers to modify their operations.
