FHA to Host Webinar on Workers' Compensation Payment Changes

The Florida Division of Workers' Compensation is moving forward with an update to the payment methodology for hospital inpatient services and will be introducing a new methodology for payment of most hospital outpatient services using established "Base Rates" adjusted for hospital location. It is expected that these changes will be effective Jan. 1, 2015.

FHA member hospitals are invited to participate as FHA staff provides an overview of these changes in a webinar on Nov.17, at 2 p.m. While there is no cost to participate in this program, we urge you to have multiple staff members participate from a single phone line/computer connection. RSVP today to receive access instructions.

For more information on both of these events, contact the FHA Education Department at (407) 841-6230.
