    Episode 5: Negotiating Managed Care Contracts, Part 1

    In this episode, Paul and Adam have a chat with noted consultant Gil Weber, MBA.

    Gil takes us through the important points to be aware of when negotiating managed care contracts with insurance companies.

    Whether you are just getting started, or have been accepting plans for years, Gil's advice can help you maximize your reimbursements and ensure that you don't get locked into a contract that makes no sense for you or your practice. In part 1, we also review seven key points you don't want to miss when negotiating.

    Thanks to Gil for his time! Those 7 tips are incredibly important, I hope we can keep the discussion going on this thread.

    Gil had lots more to say, so we saved that for Part 2, which will be up on the site next week.

    cheers

    Great Podcast

    Adam, Gil,

    I work with a number of practices in CA and neighboring states negotiating contracts. Gil's message is spot on! What a great summary. This type of information is extremely valuable.

    Best,
    Aaron
