Health Solutions for Improved Payor Contract Pricing and Modeling

Complex commercial payor contracts, payment methodologies and professional market shifts are all adding obstacles to effectively managing expected reimbursement in health care. In fact, 50 percent of payment discrepancies are due to underpayments derived from these factors. As revenue pressures increase, health care providers should look at the bigger picture of payment variance trends to unveil the root causes of inappropriate payments and to proactively model for future contracts to drive expected reimbursement.

In this educational nThrive webinar, you’ll:

  • Learn how contract management is central to your revenue cycle needs
  • Discover best practices around payment variance
  • Identify common barriers that affect the ability to accurately model contracts
  • Receive actionable tips on timely pricing, modeling and analytics
  • Learn how to establish a payment variance program to audit payor performance
