Enhance Your Oncology Claims With These Expert Tips
Many coders are taking the "wait and see" approach regarding how the Supreme Court’s recent decision on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will affect their day-to-day job functions. In that decision, the Supreme Court ruled the requirement that individuals must have health care coverage or face a penalty was an allowable tax (rather than a penalty). But the Court decided the federal government couldn’t require states to expand existing Medicaid programs by planning to disqualify noncompliant states from Medicaid funding.
