New PACHC Preferred Service Recovers Lost Revenue

On June 6, 2017, at the recommendation of our Membership Committee, PACHC finalized a contract for a PACHC Preferred relationship with Fix Healthcare Technology (Fix HT), a healthcare technology and process automation company located in the Lehigh Valley.   

  • Their premiere service, RetroCAID Tracking™, has recovered millions of dollars in retroactive Medicaid payments for more than 900 healthcare facilities in 30 states.
  • Acting as a safety net, RetroCAID-Tracking™ provides daily tracking of self-pay and sliding fee encounters and immediately alerts the health center the moment an encounter becomes retroactively reimbursable through Medicaid or an MCO within the state.  Each encounter is tracked for the full length of its respective timely filing period to ensure no retro-eligible opportunity is missed.
  • The service is 100 percent contingency based, provided on a month-to-month agreement basis and requires no software installation or integration.
  • The contract with PACHC provides a three percent discount off the standard contingency rate: a discount of two percent to PACHC members who utilize the service and the remaining one percent of the contingency fee coming to PACHC as non-dues revenue. The contract creates a win-win-win:  health centers get best pricing; Fix HT benefits from PACHC's outreach to health centers on the service; and PACHC gets non-dues revenue that helps reduce dues increases.  

If you are interested in taking advantage of this new service or would like more information, contact Howard Archer or Cindi Christ.  PACHC is also happy to connect you with a health center already using the service that can discuss their experience.
