With insurance exchanges coming online over the next few months, providers have new contracting opportunities to serve newly insured patients. Some providers may see this change as an opportunity to foray into managed care, while others already have contracts in place and are considering how exchanges will impact their existing deals.
Before venturing into exchange patient care, providers need to do their homework. First, they need to find out which payers will be serving exchange patients. Specific obligations of providers imposed by the payers and/or exchanges need to be known. Compensation formulas and payment terms need to be negotiated. Also, existing managed care contracts may have hidden terms that apply to exchange patient care.
In this informative medical compliance session, our expert Wayne J. Miller, Esq. will outline considerations for accepting care of newly insured patients. Basically, he’ll outline the steps to be completed prior to accepting contracts for exchange patient care. Wayne will also specify compensation and other terms in existing contracts and in new proposals that will be critical for successful contracting in this new era of exchanges.
Discussion areas with examples:
Who Should Attend? Hospitals, physicians, practice managers, medical groups, health care consultants and medical practice and facility executives.
