Patient Liability Determination (Medicaid)

Most patients, whether or not they have insurance, pay part of the cost for their medical care out of their own pockets. Patient liability is any amount a patient owes a healthcare provider that is not covered by a third-party insurer.

  • Identify the importance of determining patient liability
