The minute details of payer contracts can affect revenue to such an extent that they can make or break an urgent care center that’s just getting started. The Urgent Care Association will seek to help urgent care operators enter contracts that offer optimal terms during a two-part Advanced Payer Contracting Webinar this Thursday, December 6 and next Tuesday, December 11, from 1 to 2 pm, Central. After taking part in the webinar, attendees should have a firm understanding of the differences between narrow and closed networks; how to access and interpret payer market-share data; how to choose the best types of payer agreements for their operation; how to spot possible pitfalls in proposed contracts; and how to decide when the time is right to renegotiate. Cost to attend the two-part series is $75 for UCA members or $150 for nonmembers. Click here for more information or to register.
