Pros and Cons of Reimbursement Systems (***** 3 pages + APA Format + References *****)

 

In health care, services are most likely to be provided before a payment has been received, so it is imperative for health care providers to establish a reimbursement system that fits their individualized operational needs.

 

In a 3–4-page paper, identify the pros and cons of the following reimbursement methods:

 

• Prospective-payment systems

• Cost-reimbursement systems

• Discounted-charge systems

• Flat-rate reimbursement system

 

You should consider the following questions in your comparison analysis:

• When is each reimbursement system considered the preferred method? What types of providers use each system?

• When would be a time or situation when each would be used?

• How does each reimbursement system affect the various departments of health care companies and providers?

• Will choosing one system over another affect available funding sources?

 

• What other areas/people may be affected by the decision?
