What would you consider when reviewing a budget? Under what conditions is a flexible budget more effective than a forecast budget?
When reviewing a budget always try to make it a bit flexible incase something happens that wasnt in your budget. Example: if your car breaks down, or you or someone in your family gets sick.

what are the key components of a successful business office operation in a health care setting? what are some examples?
Weegy: First, you have to be very selective about the people you hire. There is going to be a TON of complexity, with the many insurance plans, the billing operations and the record keeping. [ There are two qualities you desperately need to have: People have to be self-starters, by this I mean, everyone in the office needs to be looking for things to do. You can't have people finish their task then just sit around and wait for someone to tell them what to do, they have to be constantly looking for someway to make use of their time. There will always be old paperwork that needs to get caught up on or minor cleaning and maintenance to be done. The boss shouldn't have to constantly be watching everyone. The second quality you need is determination. There will be a ton of jobs in the health care field, when tracking down claims and payments, that seem completely pointless, but if they're not done the business will suffer. A patient may need his insurance plan explained to him three times in painstaking detail before he gets it. You may have to make a dozen phone calls to get a single claim paid. If you don't put the time into the details, the patients will feel slighted and unimportant. Beyond that, there are a lot of cracks to have things slip through. People have to be willing to make sure that they don't create any more. Outside of the people, I would say that the filing system is also critical. Depending on what kind of operation you're running you might not have much paperwork at all to deal with (it might be entirely computerized). If you do have paper, it's critical that every chart or record can be found quickly. Losing a record will cause tons of headaches. Make sure that every process your business runs has a clearly defined method of filing and that every chart can be found. Also, a critical thing to watch is the "re-file" bin. It's o.k. to have a place to put charts to be re-filed, just make sure someone does that several times a day. The bin can easily ... (More)

What are the key components of a successful business office operation in a health care setting? What are some examples?
Weegy: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA),[1] commonly called Obamacare[2][3] or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. [ Together with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, it represents the most significant government expansion and regulatory overhaul of the country's healthcare system since the passage of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965.[4] The ACA aims to increase the quality, affordability, and rate of health insurance coverage for Americans, and reduce the costs of health care for individuals and the government. It provides a number of mechanisms—including mandates, subsidies, and insurance exchanges—to increase coverage and affordability.[5][6] The law also requires insurance companies to cover all applicants within new minimum standards and offer the same rates regardless of pre-existing conditions or sex.[7][8] Additional reforms aim to reduce costs and improve healthcare outcomes by shifting the system towards quality over quantity through increased competition, regulations, and incentives to streamline the delivery of health care. ] (More)
