Negotiate Payer Contracts to Get Paid More of What You’re Due


**Scroll below for a preview of this upcoming live online training.

“AS-IS” is NEVER acceptable when it comes to negotiating your third-party contracts.

You have more control over the terms of your payer contracts than you realize (including how much you’re paid). But beware, the first “base” contract always offers terms favorable to the offeror, so don’t EVER sign the first one.

Knowing how you can get the highest return from these contracts is essential to your practice’s success – especially considering that about half of your revenue is most likely tied to commercial payer contract fee schedules. Even slight changes to your current process can result in significant increases in your reimbursement and patient referrals.

This is where healthcare attorneys, Daphne Kackloudis, Esq. and Ashley Watson, Esq., can help. During this online training, they’ll provide you with valuable takeaways and a step-by-step process so you can quickly evaluate your payer contracts, identify hidden opportunities, and negotiate to maximize your reimbursements.

By attending this 60-minute online training, you’ll be able to quickly evaluate your payer fee schedules and more successfully negotiate and renegotiate contracts to increase your payment rates.

See the preview below to get a sneak peak of this upcoming online training session. Then sign up for Daphne and Ashley’s online training, so you too can negotiate and renegotiate your payer contracts like a pro.
