Day Egusquiza and Dr. Ronald Hirsch will provide regulatory and payment issues on a range of hot topics impacting both hospitals and physician practices.

Topics to include: Medicare and commercial waivers, brief overview of EMTALA/ER & STARK, CMS payment acceleration, telehealth, and loss of output revenue. “It is like drinking from a fire hose with a glimmer of hope.”

Day Egusquiza, President, AR Systems, Inc.

Day Egusquiza brings over 40 years’ experience in health care reimbursement, hospital business office operations (20 years in an Idaho hospital), contracting, auditing and compliance implementation. Additionally, her experience includes eight years as a Director of a Physician Medical Management billing service which included completing an integrated business office between a hospital and a large multi-specialty physician clinic. She has been an entrepreneur in hospital and physician practice accounts receivable management and a leader in redesigning numerous organizations. Her work includes providing guidance as a compliance & reimbursement educator while providing operational insight on the revenue cycle impacts of disruption, lost charges, coding validation and yes, why I love Traditional Medicare’s 2 MN rule. Day’s strength is her ability to ‘operationalize’ complex regulations into teachable components.
