We are pleased to announce that Claudia Hinrichsen, Esq. will be speaking in an upcoming Strafford live phone/web seminar, "Drafting Managed Care Contracts: Considerations for Providers" scheduled for Thursday, September 6, 1:00pm-2:30pm EDT.
Healthcare reform is driving fundamental changes in the relationship between providers and managed care companies and introducing new approaches for contract negotiations. Negotiating favorable rates and terms in this new environment is more challenging than ever.
Counsel for providers negotiating managed care contracts must carefully consider several highly technical and complex provisions and anticipate potential areas of dispute. Counsel must also take steps to minimize potential exposure for the provider for nonperformance of obligations under the contract.
My fellow panelists and I will provide healthcare counsel with a roadmap for drafting and negotiating managed care contracts on behalf of providers. The panel will discuss key provisions in the agreements and strategies for resolving common areas of dispute.
We will offer our perspectives and guidance on these and other critical questions:
• How is healthcare reform impacting the negotiation of managed care agreements?
• What strategies have been effective for providers' counsel in negotiating favorable provisions in managed care contracts?
• What are the most commonly disputed issues during contract negotiations and what are some effective approaches for resolving them?
After our presentations, we will engage in a live question and answer session with participants -- so we can answer your questions about these important issues directly.
I hope you'll join us.
