Explain the factors to be considered when negotiating insurance contracts.

For one of the studies for this assignment, you conducted independent research into health care revenue cycles and billing processes. You will be incorporating this information into your assignment.
Imagine that you have just stepped into a new role as the office manager for a successful medical clinic. The clinic is a conglomeration of physicians offering specialized care. Each physician group tried to manage its own billing process. It quickly became clear that one billing office would be more efficient. You realize a lack of consistency has existed in the clinic and that you will need to update the billing policies and procedures immediately. You also recognize that people often resist change. One way to minimize this resistance is to provide credible evidence supporting the changes you plan to make.
You assignment is to prepare a proposal for the physicians about the billing policy and procedure changes you plan to make. To help ensure buy-in from the physicians, you will provide relevant evidence to support each change.
Instructions
Write a proposal for changes you would like to make to the billing policies and procedures for a physicians’ clinic. Include all of the following in your proposal:
Explain how the proposed changes will benefit the patients, physicians, and the clinic.
Develop a step-by-step process for the entire revenue cycle, from preverification of insurance to accounts receivable management.
Recommend a method for determining a pricing structure.

Be sure to consider the factors that influence pricing.

Explain the factors to be considered when negotiating insurance contracts.

Determine the major payer categories appropriate for this practice.

Explain how the clinic will handle private pay and charity care.

The discussion in this unit will help you with writing this portion of your proposal.

Recommend an installed or a web-based billing software system.

Do not recommend a specific software brand, just the type of software needed.

Note: To increase physician buy-in, remember to provide a minimum of three current scholarly and/or authoritative resources to support the changes you are recommending. These resources should be over and above the resources provided to you in this unit’s studies.
Submission Requirements
Written communication: Be sure that your proposal is clear, logical, and succinct. It also needs to be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
Length: 3–4 double-spaced content pages in Times New Roman, 12-point type.
Title and reference pages: Include a title and a reference page. Include a minimum of three references to current scholarly and/or authoritative resources. These resources need to be over and above the resources identified for you in this unit’s studies. Current means no more than five years old.
APA format: Ensure in-text citations and references adhere to APA format. For an APA refresher, consult the APA Style and Format page on Campus.
Scoring guide: Review this assignment’s scoring guide so that you understand how your instructor is going to evaluate your work.
Note: Your instructor may use the Writing Feedback Tool to provide feedback on your writing. In the tool, click the linked resources for helpful writing information.

Analyze the findings of the Perry study

Chapter 5 of the course textbook discusses the brain development of the child in early life as well as the impact of accidents and maltreatment. The required article by Perry (2009) illustrates and defends an approach to child maltreatment based on neurodevelopmental analysis that seeks to understand and treat abuse victims with reference to the areas of the brain affected.
Based on these readings, account for or respond to each of the following in your initial post:
1) Analyze the findings of the Perry study, addressing the strengths and shortcomings of the neurodevelopmental approach. Are there limits to this sort of approach, and if so, what alternative approach might add something to a neurobiological analysis?
2) Offer a real life experience, alternative study, or recent news report that in some way illustrates or casts light upon Perry’s findings.
From the above Discussion, response to classmate discussion by comparing and contrasting your respective responses to the Perry study and illustrative examples, offering constructive criticism of your respective arguments and conclusions. Additionally, identify any insights you have gained as a result of reading the responses of others.
Classmate’s Discussion
After reading these chapters my thoughts on this are that perry states the brain develops from the bottom and must be fully developed before a child is born. He further stated that psychiatric medicine is not what it should detail because many mental issues have to do with the brain when it is developed [Perry, 2007], being that a child experience different things and that will influence the brain as well as the development of the brain.
Infants seem to have a quicker response to something compared to teenagers and because of that mental health has a different view than what was originally thought.
Both of these have merit to some capacity, whereas there could be parts of the brain as well as the nervous system from what a child experienced emotionally. Perry went on to say that even with therapy it will not help the person who has experience some type of trauma, [Perry. 2007].
I have a niece who suffers from severe anxiety, and it is hard for her to go places being that she will have to interact with people and that is a mental problem for her the socialization process. She has not suffered any trauma as I know of, but if what Perry said is true, maybe she suffered something as an infant which caused her a problem with the way she interprets things presented to her now. One time I thought she was suffering from another mental issue like Autism, or something her mother was taking when she was pregnant or something her father encountered in his life as a coal worker, I have no idea, however, something happened for my niece to have socialization issues and not wanting to be alone. Perry might be absolutely correct when discussing this topic.

How does each system define “the good?”

Now that you have learned about competing ethical theories, write a thread that compares and contrasts a Christian ethical theory with a competing ethical theory. Since we have already looked at ethical relativism in Discussion: Relativism vs Absolutism, you may choose from any metaethical theory covered in Moral Choices or Talking About Ethics except ethical relativism. That means you can choose from Virtue Ethics, Natural Law, Ethical Egoism, Utilitarianism, and Duty Ethics in contrast to a Christian ethical theory.
How does each system define “the good?” How does each claim to know “the good?”
What, if anything, do these systems have in common? What, if anything, are their key differences?
Which theory do you think is the stronger ethical theory? Defend your answer. This final question should take up the majority of your thread.
Be sure to carefully define your terms, articulate the strengths and weaknesses of each theory, and defend your position. You are expected to support your position with rational arguments, fitting examples, and expert sources. Any quotes or information used from sources other than yourself must be cited using footnotes in current Turabian format and will not count towards the total word count.3 Discussions in this course. The student will post one thread of at
least 500–600 words. The student must then post 1 reply of at least 500–600. You must try to
respond to a classmate who has not received a reply yet. For each thread, students must support
their assertions with at least 1 scholarly citation in Turabian format. Each reply must incorporate
at least 1 scholarly citation in Turabian format. Biblical references are highly encouraged, but
will not count as an academic source. Any sources cited must have been published within the last
five years. Acceptable sources include the course textbooks, books, journal articles, periodicals,
and similar publications. Sources such as Wikipedia and online dictionaries do not count as
academic sources and should not be used.
