Affinity Partner Program

The Affinity Partner Program develops mutually beneficial relationships between hospitals and the private sector – relationships that are relevant, cost-effective and supportive of hospitals’ priorities.

The Affinity Partner Program is your source for a wide range of quality products and services designed to help your organization operate more cost-effectively. As a wholly owned subsidiary of the Kentucky Hospital Association, we listen to you and select products and services that meet your organization’s changing needs.

KHA established this program as a benefit to its members. The Affinity Partner Program provides member discounts and special offers that would not be generally available outside of this program.

KHA Affinity Partner Program brochure

Each Affinity Partner is closely monitored for quality performance and member satisfaction.

To become an Affinity Partner there is a stringent vetting process that includes a KHA Solutions Group (KHASG) Board Review based on the following criteria:

First, the service or product must meet the following guidelines:

  • Live up to the claims it makes
  • Demonstrate financial benefits to members
  • Enrich the patient care our members provide or improve their business processes
  • Provide a simple-to-implement process


Next, each vendor must offer exemplary customer service and support for our members, and be ready to resolve any issues members have promptly. They must have and maintain a solid standing in the health care field.

Finally, the service or product must be based on sound and proven health care industry evidence.

After successfully completing the process and once approved by the KHASG Board, vendors are awarded the “Affinity Partner” designation.

AffirmedRx is on a mission to improve health care outcomes by bringing clarity, integrity and trust to pharmacy benefit management (PBM).

AffirmedRx is on a mission to improve health care outcomes by bringing clarity, integrity and trust to pharmacy benefit management (PBM).

Their approach allows them to put members and their clients first, which directly supports the goals of their clients and the consultants and brokers searching for the best solution. Their differentiators below outline how they believe they are fundamentally different:

  • AffirmedRx, a Public Benefit Corporation or PBC: created to benefit the public and serve its members. They are committed to a social mission and community considerations.
     
  • By Employers, For Employers – What employers want and need does not exist in the PBM industry today and AffirmedRx was created to serve clients and their employees/members.
     
  • Personalized care and compassionate navigation: Health care is local and personal and AffirmedRx understands the complexities of the

    pharmaceutical industry. Members receive individual support for all their needs to mitigate script abandonment and decrease medical/emergency care costs due to non-compliance/non-adherence. AffirmedRx will bring this care model to your community and work from within that community.

    • The model that matters: Patients over Profits – AffirmedRx is a company that delivers true cost control measures and reimbursement not predicated on shell games or bait and switch tactics – no hidden charges or financial withholds. They do not retain rebates, they do not retain spread, and complexities of they do not retain or bill any extra fees. They are a PBM you can trust. Care remains at the forefront of everything complexities of they do and in addition to translating to greater health and well-being, this approach mitigates medical costs resulting from denied medications in the traditional PBM model.
       
    • Alignment: AffirmedRx is aligned with its clients and is deeply committed to delivering on its mission to operate in the best interest of its members/patients and customers. Their charter as a PBC provides AffirmedRx with the legal framework to do what is right by those who rely on them for care, rather than obligate ourselves to focus on profit for shareholders, which often occurs to the detriment of clients and the members they serve. Their executive leaders have personal accountability to do what is right as demonstrated through their compensation structure being contingent upon decision-making that benefits members and clients — as overseen by the board of directors.
       
    • Intuitive, hyperflexible technology and an intelligent, care-driven platform: AffirmedRx is delivering the best of the best in its platforms – doing things differently and cultivating partnerships with technological disruptors that simplify the administrative infrastructure and work processes so 90% of the effort can be flexible, nimble, and focused on members and clients — where it really matters.

Navigating the Pressures of Emergency Department Revenue Capture

In the Emergency Department (ED), costs are rising, acuity is rising, but revenue is struggling to keep up with these increases. Reimbursement for patients discharged from the ED is driven by the facility’s level of service, for which there are no national guidelines, and supplemented by the capture of other procedures and services performed in the ED such as IV medications and laceration repairs. Documentation from the care providers and understanding of the “why” by all involved will result in the correct reimbursement for the services you have provided.

During the May 30 KHA Town Hall, Terri Scales, CPC, CCS-P and Cara Geary, CPC, COC, CEDC, CCS-P with Bill Dunbar and Associates (BDA) discussed the need for a team approach which includes the ED professional services providers (physician, NP, PA), nursing staff, coding, AR/ROI, and information technology. Having all stakeholders understand the “why” will ensure your facility captures the appropriate reimbursement for the services provided.

Something to think about: 

Are all Emergency Department services provided documented appropriately?  Are you accurately capturing all Emergency Department services supported by documentation, to ensure appropriate facility reimbursement?

For KHA members:

KHA’s vetted partner for outpatient clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and consulting services, Bill Dunbar & Associates (BDA), typically helps providers see net improvements at 20% for the ED facility (and 15% for the physician practices). BDA provides a solution to address the margin pressures that hospitals are experiencing. They also include a unique compensation model that shifts the risk to BDA – no need to budget for their services. BDA’s coding services are designed to improve outpatient medical documentation. Their focus is on compliance, documentation, coding, and reimbursement, and helping emergency departments and outpatient clinics reach optimal revenue capture. The training occurs at all levels of the revenue cycle (front office, back office, practitioner, etc.).

The Berkshire Group specializes in the identification, recovery and return of payments owed to its clients that were never known, received, or deposited by the client.

When these “one off,” non-regular and non-recurring payments go uncollected, the sender remits payment to the states.  Here, at the state level, these uncashed payments remain until, when and if, the client commences a recovery action for their repatriation.

Berkshire will work with clients to find unpaid claims using their proprietary process. 

Berkshire does the heavy lifting and requires very little of the clients’ time. 

Berkshire handles all aspects of the claims-recovery process quickly, correctly, and professionally.

Organizations agree to pay Berkshire 20 percent of the recovered claim payments.  Berkshire never touches the recovered funds. All recovered payments are mailed directly from the states to the client. 

After the client receives payment, Berkshire is paid 20 percent of the recovery.

In 2023, Berkshire recovered over $20 million for their 25+ healthcare and other sector clients.

Berkshire maintains offices in Miami, Los Angeles, Boston, and New Jersey.  They have multiple clients in many states and industries. 

Notable healthcare clients include Vanderbilt Health, Georgetown University Medical Center, Sinai Healthcare of Baltimore, Atlantic Health Systems, one of New Jersey’s most prestigious healthcare systems; AllSpire Partners, a regional GPO with over 50 hospitals, several thousand medical offices and locations and an enterprise value more than $20 billion.

College and university clients include Vanderbilt University, Brown University, Rutgers University, University of Maryland, College Park, and University of Delaware.   

I am the tax director for a large academic medical center in Nashville, which was previously operated as a division of a large university but is now its own separate legal entity.  The large university engaged The Berkshire Group, and as part of its engagement, Berkshire found unclaimed property for the Medical Center, leading us to engage Berkshire. 

As a rule, our tax team regularly searches state unclaimed property records for outstanding claims, but we found The Berkshire Group’s search to be more comprehensive and to include even time-consuming tasks, such as searching all DBAs.  We simply provided our organizational chart and some background regarding our structure.  Even with our internal unclaimed property reviews, Berkshire quickly identified $360K in additional claims.  To claim the unclaimed property, I provided my ID and electronic signature (items typically required for any unclaimed property claims), and Berkshire handled the rest. 

Berkshire identified additional unclaimed property and secured the claims quickly because of its experience and relationships with the states. Berkshire started our project immediately after engagement, and I’ve found them to be responsive; effective; and they have not expected payment of the contingency fee until we received the funds from the claim.  Based on my positive experiences, I would recommend working with The Berkshire Group.

Additionally, through this collaboration, ongoing educational programs will be provided to member hospitals through KHA’s forums and town hall meetings.

HSG’s data partnership with KHA allows for unique access to ambulatory and physician-level all-payer claims. The proprietary grouping and reporting of data include ambulatory and physician office services for all patients living within an identified market county.

Improve patient care. Help patients save money on medications so they fill their prescriptions, go to the emergency room less often, and have better health outcomes.

Simplify 340B. At no upfront cost, SUNRx can administer all aspects of your 340B program, including eligibility, inventory, third party payments, and regulatory compliance.

Health centers and hospitals in Kentucky and across the nation are choosing SUNRx to implement and manage 340B programs.

VaxCare has been a game-changer for our practice, especially when it comes to managing our vaccine inventory. With their platform, we no longer have to invest in purchasing expensive vaccines upfront, which can be a significant financial burden for a practice like ours. Instead, VaxCare provides us with the vaccines we need, ensuring we have a steady supply without the upfront cost.

This has not only eliminated the financial strain but also reduced the risk of expiration or wasted doses, as VaxCare closely monitors vaccine expiration dates and rotates stock accordingly. We can focus on providing quality care to our patients, knowing that we have access to the vaccines we need, when we need them.  Their insurance eligibility verification not only helps us know when we can give vaccines to individuals risk-free (regarding payment for vaccines), we find it beneficial for our billing department and revenue cycle management.

Moreover, VaxCare’s system helps us avoid the situation where we run out of vaccines, potentially losing patients to retail pharmacy or risking patients not returning for vaccines. Their platform actively tracks our vaccine usage and automatically replenishes our inventory, so we’re never caught without a vaccine. This reliability has been crucial in retaining our patients’ trust and ensuring they continue to rely on us for their immunization needs.

Thanks to VaxCare, we can operate efficiently while offering a wide range of vaccines without the financial burden and logistical challenges associated with inventory management. We highly recommend VaxCare to any practice looking to optimize their vaccine operations and maintain a competitive edge.
