Press Release
Medical Reimbursements of America’s General Counsel, Chad Powers, to Speak at AAHAM ANI 2014
MRA General Counsel to Lead Educational Session on Accident-Related Liability Billing Compliance
Franklin, TN – April 15, 2014 – Medical Reimbursements of America (MRA), a national leader in Accident
Claims Management, today announced that the American Association of Healthcare Administrative
Management (AAHAM) has selected Chad Powers, MRA General Counsel, as educational speaker for the
2014 Annual National Institute. Mr. Powers is a senior executive with the company who regularly
provides educational sessions at healthcare and revenue cycle industry events nationwide. To provide
ongoing support of the industry, MRA welcomes the opportunity to deliver such educational speakers
and sponsorships to healthcare professionals and association members including local, regional and
national AAHAM meetings and conferences.
The 2014 Annual National Institute will be held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California
from October 15-17, 2014. The ANI is attended by nearly 500 National members and over 75 exhibitors.
Each year, the members of AAHAM come together to exchange ideas, network with colleagues and
industry professionals, and further their knowledge and education in the field of Patient Account
Management. In addition to Mr. Powers providing this educational session, MRA is also a sponsor of the
2014 AAHAM ANI, with company representatives demonstrating AcciClaim™, the leading revenue cycle
solution for optimizing payments from Motor Vehicle Accidents and Workers’ Compensation claims.
The educational session to be offered by Chad Powers is entitled “The Hidden Dangers of Billing
Liability.” The session explains the complex legal challenges associated with properly billing for accidentrelated medical claims, and it provides strategies for avoiding the compliance risks of billing these
complex claims. Mr Powers has spoken on this topic more than a dozen times over the past year and
continues to earn positive feedback from revenue cycle leaders across the country. A Midwest hospital
CFO recently shared her thoughts by saying, “Chad Powers was able to give valuable insight on the very
complicated subject of accident claims billing. By the end of the presentation, the audience had a much
clearer understanding of the compliance challenges of property and casualty and workers’
compensation insurances, the distinctions between no-fault vs. liability insurance policies, how to
determine primacy and proper coordination of benefits, and the significant liability exposure facing
CEOs and CFOs of hospitals that do not bill these claims correctly.”
“The ultimate objective for the AAHAM ANI speaking event is to educate, enlighten and challenge
hospitals to examine their current billing processes and learn Best Practice techniques for proper
management of Accident Claims,” said President, Lyle Beasley. “There are hidden risks involved in billing
accident claims which are difficult to understand due to the legal complexities of this narrow financial
class. Hospitals need to understand these risks and need to develop a comprehensive strategy to avoid
negative PR, poor patient satisfaction, lost revenue and expensive compliance penalties.”
