S-10 Preparation and Review

Now that Worksheet S-10 Schedules are used to distribute uncompensated care funds, hospitals must ensure that all uncompensated and indigent care costs are included on the S-10. It can be difficult to ensure the S-10 is accurate and compliant.

BESLER’s S-10 Preparation and Review services are tailor made for busy providers like you.

We use a hybrid approach, leveraging healthcare revenue cycle optimization technology to populate S-10 schedules, complemented by expert reviews from experienced consultants which together will reduce your team’s stress when it comes to S-10 concerns.

Both of our Worksheet S-10 Preparation and S-10 Review services include a thorough review and analysis of your hospital’s:
