Join us at 8:30 PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, September 10 for a one hour webinar entitled “Medicare Advantage Contract Negotiations: What You Need to Know”.


It is critical for practices to develop a process for continuously evaluating payer contracts in order to ensure maximum reimbursement. Too commonly, physicians do not have an overall strategy for negotiating contracts in order to obtain the best possible rates for private and Medicare Advantage Plans.

 This timely webinar will cover your most pressing problems and questions such as:

  • Managing policies that restrict access to physicians’ choice of drugs – prior authorization, etc.
  • Understanding the fee schedule for J codes
  • How to review IPAs
  • How to handle disputes when they arise
