Payor contracting is a critical function that is integral to ensuring that your practice and the associated physicians, mid-level providers, ancillaries and other clinicians are appropriately reimbursed for the care and services they provide. Many provider organizations leave “money on the table” with inefficient, ineffective, and infrequent payor contract management. Many provider organizations have failed to implement comprehensive payer contract management practices because of the complexity associated with negotiating and managing multiple contracts. This session will cover how provider organizations can overcome these challenges and maximize their revenue by understanding the basics of payor contracts, the value of payor relationships and the ability to ‘tell the practice story’, analytics, contract language, negotiations, financial impact and other related matters.
