Tackling a project to get contracts in better order can be incredibly daunting, with many obstacles that can cause practices to derail and fail. Attendees at this preconference will glean insider tips from an expert who spent 18 years on the payer side of the industry. The session will provide practical approaches to overcome these challenges and stay on track. This comprehensive program addresses gathering contracts and subsequent amendments and related contract fee schedules, inventorying and analyzing findings, creating a renegotiation strategy and timeline, sending proper notice to renegotiate or terminate, modeling and analyzing offers and counteroffers, negotiating and/or managing contract provisions, closing the deals and maintaining contractual relationships going forward. Attendees will receive a contract inventory tool to help launch their project when they return to the office. While basic enough for the beginner, this in-depth, start-to-finish approach to payer contracting will benefit the seasoned practice administrator as well.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Manage current payer and network agreements
  • Create a renegotiation strategy and timeline
  • Identify strategies to improve contract terms
