Revenue Operations Manual
The current Revenue Operations Manual (ROM), which was approved July, 2006, is provided below. An updated version of the ROM is in development and will be posted when it becomes available.
The Indian Health Service Revenue Operations Manual (ROM) provides a system-wide reference resource for all Indian, Tribal, and Urban (I/T/U) facilities across the United States, to assist any and all staff with any function related to business operation procedures and processes.
The Revenue Operations Manual (ROM) is available for viewing, saving, and printing at the local level. Each part and chapter of the manual addresses a specific area, department, or function. A part may also contain one or more appendices of topic-related reference materials. Access to the manual has been designed to allow facilities to view, save, and print only those chapters that relate to their type of facility.
