Best Practices for Negotiating Payer Contracts
Best practices for Managed Care leaders to negotiate payer contracts as cost shifts from the payer to the patient.
Shifting reimbursement is putting more pressure on hospital executives to set charges, negotiate payer contractual allowables, and provide accurate estimates of cost. The result leaves patients to assume greater financial responsibility than ever before.
Healthcare providers recognize that reimbursement negotiations still take place with
the organization’s payers, but the patient is quickly becoming a consumer of healthcare services—
versus a recipient of services.
This whitepaper provides Managed Care leaders with details on how contract governance is evolving in a consumer-focused, value-based payment system, and outlines best practices for negotiating payer contracts.
