Health, Public Safety & Intergovernmental Cmte 9/16/2010 1D5 Presented
REPORT: Ms. Mary Lou Tighe, Jackson Health System, appeared before the HPSIC and presented a report that displayed a flowchart of their billing system. Chairwoman Heyman noted, for the record, that she hoped this flow chart would be disseminated to all the members of HPSIC to resolve the concerns regarding accurate and timely billing and the implementation of a structured billing system. Ms. Tighe noted that the flow chart reflected the process needed in those areas Chairwoman Heyman mentioned. She also noted that a report was generated daily to monitor the status of the billing system. Chairwoman Heyman requested that copies of this report be distributed to all the members of the County Commission to inform them of initiatives and tangible steps taken during the review of budget reductions and to assist with operating expenses of JMH. Ms. Tighe noted that she would ensure this information was presented at the Committee of the Whole meeting on Monday, September 20, 2010. In response to Commissioner Rolle’s inquiry regarding the effective date of this new billing system, Ms. Tighe noted the system was currently in operation, but she would have to follow-up and provide the effective date of this new system later. In response to Commissioner Rolle’s question regarding the process indicated on this flow chart being implemented and whether it would resolve the existing billing problems at Jackson Health System, Ms. Tighe noted yes, this system was currently implemented and those billing problems have been addressed. She said she would ensure that Mr. Marcus Lapciuc, Public Health Trust reviewed this billing system.
