The Medicaid and Government Payors Insurance Reimbursement department consists of a great team of individuals responsible for collecting all insurance dollars for the services provided to Florida Hospital patients. This is accomplished by making frequent and effective status calls to Medicaid and Government Payors or via online requests. In an effort to resolve outstanding accounts, the Insurance Reimbursement team tracks and trends Medicaid and Government Payor payments in order to provide feedback to Medicaid and Government Payors for improved future performance.
