        Insurance Contract Negotiations - How to Negotiate Like a Pro

        Led by VA MGMA, in collaboration with the CT MGMA, DE MGMA, MA/RI MGMA, MD MGMA NY MGMA, and PA MGMA.

        What are your peers doing with their payor contracts?  Walk through numerous, actual contract negotiations from real-life practice success stories.  Learn to advocate for your practice using proven techniques from a veteran contract negotiator.  Most physician practices focus on cutting expenses instead of improving the revenue to the practice from non-governmental payors.  A little focused effort on negotiating payor contracts can create much needed money for the practice.  You can do it!  Negotiating your payor agreements can be the difference your practice needs for maintaining profits and independence in these complex times of health exchanges, increasing regulation, and pressure to contain costs system-wide.

        Learning Objectives:
        1. Get organized for the contracting process and prepare for a successful negotiation
        2. List the predictable steps in any negotiation
        3. Identify strategies to monitor success once the contract is in effect
