A New Begining in Public Health
The public health mission is becoming increasingly difficult. As the demand for health care services and preventative care in local health departments across the nation rises rises, funding and staffing continues to shrink.
It is time for a new beginning in public health.
Local health departments now have the opportunity to determine their own future by becoming self sustainable. By starting or improving and existing billing process, each organization can capture funding from public and private insurers for community services.
Effective billing programs can capture revenue from Medicaid, Medicare and private insurance that will not only alleviate funding issues but will allow for staffing increases and an expansion of community health services. Immunizations, family planning clinics, well child clinics, screenings, lab tests and case management all represent services that, when coupled with fees, develop sustainable health department revenue.
