You know it’s true. Payers bury excessive, time-sucking burdens in their managed care contracts hoping you won’t take the time to read the tiny type or wade through the pages of legalese.
They do this on purpose. The longer it takes you to process your claims, the longer your payers get to keep your money. However, it is possible for you to get rid of (or at least reduce) these costly, unnecessary requirements if you know how.
There are proven tactics you can utilize when negotiating and renegotiating your managed care contracts that can significantly reduce payer burdens on your practice. With a little help, you can cut prior authorization timelines, reduce payer medical records requests (and get paid for them), reduce recoupment demands, and get more of your denied claims overturned.
You can do something about it, and expert Doral Davis-Jacobsen, MBA, FACMPE is going to show you how. During her online training, Doral will walk you through exactly how to better negotiate your new and existing managed care contracts to reduce their time and cost burden on your practice.
