Healthcare Unclaimed Property

In the context of accounts payable within healthcare, unclaimed property can occur when a company has outstanding credit balances or accounts payable credits that remain unclaimed by suppliers for an extended period. If these credits are not properly managed or reconciled, they may be subject to escheatment laws.

Escheatment laws vary by jurisdiction but generally require companies to report and transfer unclaimed property, including unclaimed accounts payable credits, to the state government after a specified period of dormancy, usually several years.

Healthcare systems must make every effort to locate and notify suppliers before escheating the funds to the state.

Proper record-keeping, reconciliation processes, and compliance with relevant regulations are essential to ensure the appropriate handling of healthcare unclaimed property. Penalties for failing to transfer unclaimed property can be financially arduous so it’s important for healthcare systems to have effective processes in place to manage both aspects to maintain financial accuracy and compliance with escheatment laws.

During the unclaimed property phase of each healthcare AP recovery audit, we:

  • Review vendor accounts and check registers for unclaimed property, open checks, and cash on accounts and reconcile funds
  • Analyze the details of transactions that resulted in unclaimed property and provide recommendations for processes and procedures to strengthen the P2P process
  • Identify and recover abandoned and unclaimed property from all levels of government agencies
