Financial Services

NCHA Financial Services staff help members navigate the ongoing changes in healthcare finance while protecting funding and reimbursement. As demands increase to control expenditures in an environment of new regulations and evolving reimbursement methods, members can rely on NCHA’s financial services for information and guidance to stay viable.

The association often represents members’ financial interests before federal and state regulatory agencies and third-party payers. The staff also manages the Medicaid Reimbursement Initiative/Gap Assessment Program and convenes workgroups with members to work on issues related to government and commercial payers.
