Billing and financial management are complex, yet essential components of operating a successful community health center organization. Whether reporting business operations to board directors and federal authorities, analyzing Medicare and Medicaid processes and changes, or managing grants, finance officers play an integral role in the operational sustainability of health centers and in charting a course for growth and expansion.

CHAD’s finance team stands ready to assist CHCs with financial and business operational strategies to support essential services, provide stability, promote cost-effectiveness, and inspire growth within health center organizations. CHAD utilizes the finance team network, monthly meetings, webinars, trainings, technical assistance and on-site visits to offer financial support in many key areas, including:

   • Financial benchmarking, including Uniform Data Services (UDS)
   • Financial reporting systems that efficiently monitor, analyze and report the health center
     operations to executive management, board directors and federal authorities
   • Grants and management reporting
   • Medicare and Medicaid processes and changes
   • Policies and procedures for sliding fee scale programs
   • Revenue cycle systems to help maximize health center patient revenue and manage
     patient accounts receivables
