Managed Care Contract Services
Assure compliance protection and decrease payer request burden.
In the real world, how much time and attention do we give to the medical records section of managed care contracts?
If your organization is like most, it is a low priority, and there are three reasons why:
Many payer contracts include a medical records section that outlines the payer process for requesting medical records and the related financial terms. When negotiating these agreements, the payer contracting department may not understand the compliance and financial risks across the organization, or the burden that is placed on the HIM team by the terms for managing payer medical record requests.
- The healthcare provider may not be equipped with the right data and intelligence to bolster negotiations with payers regarding medical record requests.
- The sheer volume and complexity of managed care contracts, makes it difficult to scrutinize every agreement.
The MRO team can provide the right data and intelligence to bolster negotiations with payers regarding medical record requests.
