With eligibility that means that you have to meet the requirements to be accepted into the program. Whether it is gender, age, social status, height, weight, or area you live in. All organization has the authority to come up with their eligibility rules. A program must have structure because without it the program would not be successful.

Those listed are Assurant Health, Insurance partners, Humana, Aetna, Cigna, BlueCross BlueShield, and United Healthcare (Beachway, 2010).

Evulating Eligibility Rules

...Evaluating Eligibility Rules HSM 240 Rules are important in every aspect of life. Eligibility rules are equally important for any kind of services offered, especially those offered to assist the general public. The Arc program, as well the local Chemung Arc, is an organization developed to assist those with developmental disabilities and just like every other organization, it has eligibility rules for the people it assists and services. ARC has eligibility requirements that most would consider not too difficult to establish. Any person with any kind of intellectual or developmental disability is accepted into the ARC program, where services vary depending upon need. The catch to these services is the way a person and/or their family will able to financially make the decision to join the organization. The eligibility rules for such programs as Medicare and Medicaid may be the toughest rules to fall into. Being defined as intellectually or developmentally disabled is done by a doctor, usually at a very young age. Being diagnosed as disabled by a doctor falls under: eligibility by professional discretion. Once diagnosed, unfortunately lots of doors and opportunities close for a person. In order to successfully go to ARC for assistance in opening these doors back up, Medicaid is a popular route to take for financial assistance. Information on applying for Medicaid services is very limited online. ARC states, “Medicaid is, however, extremely complicated” (The ARC, 2013)....

Eligibility Change in the Nba

...Eligibility Change in the NBA The National Basketball Association is a billion dollar business and is known as one of the largest and most prestigious organizations within American sports today. It is also home of one of the most controversial rules in all of sports, which is known as the “one and done rule.” The one and done rule restricts high school basketball players from entering the NBA Draft straight out of high school (Zegers). According to this policy, anyone who wants to enter the NBA Draft must complete at least one season and school year at the collegiate level or be at least the age of nineteen. This policy created by NBA Commissioner David Stern went into effect for the 2005-2006 season of the NBA (Medcalf). The creation of this rule between the National Basketball Association and the players union caused immediate backlash from many players who all felt that the policy was very unreasonable. The one and done rule should be changed to either go play in college for two years or be able to head straight to the NBA, because coaches have difficulty recruiting players who only want to play one year and it could be bad for players to have to go to school first if they were to suffer any problems that could occur due to their decision. Millions of Americans including myself are huge fans of college and NBA basketball. I love to watch my favorite college basketball players go to the NBA and follow their career of playing professional basketball. Prior to the......

...Eligibility, Payment, and Billing Procedures * Describe a factor that determines patient benefits eligibility. * What are the appropriate steps to take when insurance does not cover a planned service? * Relate these steps to the eligibility factor you identified and provide two examples of patient charges with corresponding billing transactions. Some factors that determine a patients benefits eligibility is their age, marital status, immigration status, healthcare needs, and work history. Also, if the patient works for a company that provides insurance, the insurance company may only cover the health care until a certain dollar amount, and then the patient is responsible for the rest. The appropriate steps to take when the insurance plan does not cover the service that is planned for the patient is to first tell them! The patient needs to be told and explained to that the insurance plan does not cover their service that was planned and if possible, why it is not covered. Many people think that their insurance will cover many different services but, this is not always true. I am still unaware of what my insurance plan covers and does not cover completely. Then, the patient needs to be told that if they choose to continue with the planned service, the insurance company nor the provider will be responsible for the remainder of the bill. They need to be told that they will be responsible for paying the bill completely. Some choose not to go through with the......

...Eligibility, Payment, and Billing Procedures Janessa Ashford HCR/220 There are a few factors that determine a patient’s benefits eligibility. Some of these include: whether coverage may end on the last day of the month in which the employee’s active full-time service ends. The employee may no longer qualify as a member of the group. For instance if a part time employee does not get benefits at that job, the employee may lose benefits when they lose hours. An eligible dependent’s coverage may end on the last day of the month in which the dependent status also ends, or reaching the age limit stated in the policy. When you work for a company full time and receive benefits, if you drop down to part time, you may lose those benefits. Most places do this. If someone is not eligible for the benefits trying to be used, the patient will then be responsible for the total themselves. Most offices require a signature stating that if your insurance does not cover the procedure or visit, the patient is then responsible for all charges. The place of business must let the patient know, first, that their insurance denied a claim and that they now have a balance due. If someone with full-time benefits has preventative care with no co-pay, then drops down to part-time and less benefits, their policy could change and they could no longer have preventative services......

This program is a compilation of programs under the principle of service through the word of Jesus Christ. They state as their mission: “The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination” (2009). The Salvation Army application of rules for prior contributions, administrative performance, private contract arrangements, use of professional discretion and confidentiality, attachment to the workforce, and application of proper judgment (2005) allow for best practices to be applied. They also use means testing which applies an analysis of need less assets plus income. All of these factors speak well for them in making an evaluation of this organization. Regardless of any other eligibility requirements, The Salvation Army offers its services to anyone who is in need. Anyone who is affected by a disaster can qualify for services through their programs. This is a simple process because of the fact that The Salvation Army acts as a second responder which makes it easier for them to accept many......

...SAP Eligibility Rules Jeanine Jones University of Phoenix HSM/240 December 10, 2013 In an organization, eligibility rules are so important because they allow clients to receive benefits and services. Eligibility rules seek the resources that are available to the clients and ration them so that people can learn and benefit from resources. Sometimes when the eligibility rules are not correctly propositioned, people will not even the available resources. Decisions need to be made and whether a person qualifies for assistance falls between guidelines that are set into place for the greater good of the clients. The Substance Abuse Program is an important organization whose eligibility rules matter the most because the inmates have already been stripped of all of their rights. The main eligibility process for the Substance Abuse Program is through Judicial Decision. Because the Substance Abuse program is only offered to incarcerated inmates and this opportunity is handed down by a judicial ruling. Inmates may plead their case to the court, and in many instances they know that being accepted into the program means reduced sentencing. Instead of focusing on getting out of custody to return to the same habits, inmates should really appreciate the special program that they are limited to. Judicial decisions are important because each ruling is different. The Substance Abuse Program has been around through the correction facility for a while and there are......
