Lobbying for our Clients: Valletta’s Trip to Capitol Hill

July 17, 2017

On the final day of HBMA’s 2017 Compliance Symposium, a few of us at The Valletta Group had the opportunity to meet with members of Congress to discuss various healthcare issues. It’s no secret that healthcare policy is currently in a state of volatility. In times of heated debate such as this, often only the most serious and divisive issues receive attention. Unfortunately, this can cause lesser-known, yet equally important issues to get overlooked.

Thus, the time is critical for RCM companies like ourselves to further relationships with our leaders and stand up for the policies that protect our clients and their patients. So when The Valletta Group and other HBMA members visited Capitol Hill, we spoke up for these lesser-known, bipartisan issues. These are the policies that help ensure a level playing field between insurance payers and physicians/patients.

Two of these issues are discussed below.

Protecting our Providers: HIPAA Compliance Procedures

June 28, 2017

A few weeks ago, members of The Valletta Group attended the Healthcare Business Management Association’s (HBMA) Annual Compliance Symposium in Washington D.C. The event featured highly-informative lectures from various experts in the healthcare industry.

Compliance is a rather broad subject. Quite simply, it is the act of abiding by the governing rules and regulations of a particular industry. However, in the revenue cycle management (RCM) industry, certain aspects of compliance command much greater attention. At the forefront of most RCM insiders’ minds is the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and more specifically, the privacy and security sections of Title II.
