Increasing Access to Healthcare Through In-Network Contracting
Hal Wurtzel has worked with payors of all the major health plans and smaller regional carriers. While Hal knows the players, he knows that it is equally essential that the behavioral healthcare industry understands how to negotiate the best terms for our patients and their families.
Hal will do a deep dive into in-network contracting, covering:
An overview of successful contract negotiations processes
When a facility must bring a consultant on, as opposed to doing it themselves
Misconceptions people have about contracting with payors
Addressing network adequacy
How to dissect payor contract language and notice the ‘gray areas.’
What happens when the payor you have a contract with gets acquired by another company?
