This textbook is designed for students preparing as advanced practice clinicians, including APRNs, DNPs, DPTs, DOTs, and physician assistants. The book covers both health policy issues and practice financial management issues. It is organized into seven sections in two parts. The first part is focused on macro issues in healthcare finance, and the second part is focused on healthcare financing management in professional practice. This approach provides the context necessary for the clinician to understand how to manage reimbursement requirements and preferred provider contracting as health care financial policy drives these payment and contracting strategies. Each section features a case study to facilitate classroom discussion on key points. This book is suitable for healthcare finance courses in the curriculum for MSN and DNP programs and also for schools of social work, medicine, occupational, and physical therapy.
