MEDICAID REFORM: Support our Local Hospital
This year, Missouri will
miss out on $2 billion in federal
funding - $5.5 million per day – because
we didn’t act to reform and expand
Medicaid last year. Our state, and our
hospitals, cannot afford to have 2015 be
hospitals statewide will lose $4 billion
from cuts used to pay for coverage
included in the Affordable Care Act.
These cuts will happen whether or not
Missouri adopts a Medicaid reform plan.
In 2012, Missouri hospitals provided
more than $1.17 billion in uncompensated
care. However, this level of
uncompensated care is unsustainable,
especially in light of the anticipated
community understands the importance of
hospitals to the state’s economy and the
long-term burden that businesses will
bear without Medicaid reform. Without
action, business will continue to
experience cost shifting to pay for the
uninsured. In addition, our workforce
will be sicker and less productive.
Missouri can’t afford to sit on the
sidelines as other states improve their
workforce and business climate. We can’t
wait until doctors leave the state,
hospitals lay off workers or hospitals
close their doors to take action.
Three out of four uninsured
Missourians are in a working family.
Medicaid works for working Missourians
and all Missourians. We n4ed to take
action this year.

AAPC accepts CEUs from AHIMA
AAPC offers CEU-for-CEU credit for all AHIMA audio conferences and workshops. We
also honor CEUs from AHIMA for online self assessments. A certificate of
attendance or completion is necessary to show participation. One hour of

AHIMA national offices and the state AHIMA branches.
The professional practice is a
component of an academic program (for credit) in which the student
is assigned to work at a healthcare location with a set of
objectives to fulfill. The intent is to incorporate classroom theory
with real-world application. These experiences can last from a
couple of days to several weeks.
The professional practice experience is a very important component of HIM
education. The accredited programs in the state of Missouri are always looking
for new sites. If you would like more information, please
