Negotiate Higher-Paying Third-Party Payer Contracts


Third party payers don’t want you to know the truth. They don’t want you to know that you CAN get paid more and that it’s easier than you might think.

Payers have one goal in mind – to pay you less. They do this by making the contract negotiation process as confusing as possible (i.e., outdated fee schedules, confusing contract language, etc.).

The more challenging it is for you to negotiate your third party payer contracts, the more likely you are to give up. In fact, this is precisely what they are counting on. However, if you know how, you can get payers to cough up the extra reimbursement you deserve.

There are ways to break through the payer contracting wall. You can get them to respond to your requests and, yes, increase your rates if you know how to get them to work with you and kick-start discussions.

This is where third party payer contract negotiation expert Doral Jacobsen MBA, FACMPE, comes in. Doral will walk you through how to build and deploy a successful payer contracting strategy step-by-step. You’ll get proven communication scripts, and you’ll even receive a guide to develop your practice’s own value proposition. Armed with these tools, you’ll be able to engage payers and secure increased rates much more quickly and easily.
