Ambulance Delivery To Emergency Rooms Set To Skyrocket Putting Ambulance Company Financials On Life Support

Medicaid and Medicare Drive Reimbursements Below Cost of Service

More Boomers will visit the ER
More Boomers will visit the ER

Schaumburg, IL—September 22, 2016—The convergence of the aging baby boomer population, the projected increase of emergency room services for baby boomers, added to lower reimbursement rates for Medicaid and the increasing influence of private insurance companies with Medicare, signals a rough road ahead for ambulance companies.

In a new survey by revenue realization leader, CDO Squared, and the American Ambulance Association, 126 ambulance company executives were asked, As a rule, the number of emergency department visits is much higher for Medicaid and Medicare recipients than for the uninsured and those with private insurance. How will this effect your profitability over the next five years?”

The survey revealed that well over 70 percent of ambulance companies saw decreased profitability over the next five years. “In an industry already hard hit by the effects of Obama Care, this is just one more pressure point put onto ambulance companies to maintain profitability.” according the William Stuckert, CEO of CDO Squared. The American Ambulance Association also weighed in on the survey results. “Ambulance services continue to struggle to do more in the way of providing high-quality medical care and improving patient outcomes with less financial resources, and from the survey it doesn’t appear it will get better.”  Stated Mike Hall, AAA President.  “On the Medicare payor front, H.R. 745 and S. 377 would make permanent the current temporary add-ons that have allowed ambulance services to maintain critical financial relief.”

Stuckert offered this advice for those struggling with increased pressure on their financials. “Ambulance companies must learn how to balance their payer mix. With the push by many states to move Medicaid patients into Managed Medicaid Programs, ambulance companies must choose a payer mix that provides a reasonable amount of profitability.” Stuckert stressed the importance of using cash flow analytics to take a deeper look at the profitability of an ambulance company’s location. “Once you understand the true value of your facility, you’ll be able to balance your runs for reasonable profitability” said Stuckert.

Obama Care Costs Ambulance Companies More Than $2 Billion In Lost Revenue

Schaumburg, IL—August 30, 2016—To understand the serious affect that the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) has had on ambulance companies, CDO Squared™, the leader in revenue realization for profit-minded EMS providers, initiated a survey with the American Ambulance Association. The results were staggering when dollarized. One hundred twenty-six ambulance company executives were asked the following question: “Over the past few years, many ambulance companies have been negatively impacted by the increase in Medicare and Medicaid patients now enrolled in managed care plans run by for-profit insurance companies. What effect has this had on your operation in lost revenue since the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) was enacted?”

The result: Overall the impact totaled $2.1 billion in lost revenue because of reduced margins due to lower fees dictated by the plan. The survey also revealed that those with revenues of $1 to $50 million (82.5% of the participants) had lost revenues between $315,000 to $730,000 with larger operations driving the averages up. According to William Stuckert, President and CEO of CDO Squared, “The results are not surprising when you consider that over 75 percent of Medicare and Medicaid patients now opt for a managed care plan. What it boils down to is that these for-profit insurance companies are driving costs down, in many cases below the actual operating costs of many ambulance companies. It’s a numbers game, as you see the larger companies with more exposure being hit the hardest.” When asked what ambulance companies can do to offset these losses, Mr. Stuckert said “Ambulance companies need to manage their commercial payers and overall costs better, and that means collecting more of the revenue they are entitled to. Since ambulance companies excel at saving lives, many lack the tools to collect revenue they are owed. In fact, on average, ambulance companies collect only 70 percent of the revenue they are due as reimbursements are lost in a sea of EMS data.”

Maria Bianchi, Executive Vice President of American Ambulance Association, echoed much the same sentiment regarding insufficient reimbursements in the industry. “The CDO Squared survey results reinforce what the American Ambulance Association has long known—ambulance services across the country are operating in a climate where reimbursement is often well below the cost of service. AAA volunteers, consultants, partners, and staff are working tirelessly across many channels to bring to ambulance services the reimbursement revenue they need to continue serving the public each and every day.”
