Decoding Healthcare Finances: Understanding Costs and Indirect Allocation Strategies – Cost of Care Part 2

Wednesday March 13 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


Description: With the District of Columbia’s movement to a reimbursement system with services defined and paid through a procedure code, healthcare leadership must understand the costs that are directly provided and those that indirectly support the service. Methodologies used to allocate indirect costs will be identified, examined, and critiqued.  This learning session will provide more underlying detail to the concepts put forth in the Determination of Cost for Provider Services and its Use in Managing the Business, presented on November 30, 2023 (Watch the session here). This session will provide key decision-makers, financial analysts, and practice management staff with an understanding of the expenses encompassed within each cost component. The session will also provide education and a tool pertaining to the allocation of indirect costs and the significance of that allocation method given certain business situations.

Speakers: Chuck Weis, MBA, CPA Principal, Health Management Associates & Suzanne Daub, LCSW Principal, Health Management Associates
