Description

The Technical Assistance Costing Tool (TACT) is an Excel-based software tool that lets providers identify how much their services cost. It uses basic patient information to calculate patient care expenses, providing grantees with cost information on their clinical services that can then be used for billing and reimbursement with managed care organizations and other third party payers.

Topics addressed include:

  • Who can benefit?
  • What questions can TACT answer?
  • How do I use TACT?
  • How do I get a copy of TACT and the TACT user manual?
  • How do I access Webcast information?
  • Technical assistance: What if I have questions?
