Physicians don’t have to accept substandard contracts

December 14, 2017
Area(s) of Interest: Payor Contracting Practice Management 

Remember, state law requires payors to give advance notice of material contract changes, with the opportunity for physicians to terminate their contracts if the changes aren’t favorable to their practice. That’s why its important that practices have a process in place to review all payor communications, including mail and payor bulletins, to stay on top of proposed contract changes.  For more information, see “Know Your Rights: Payor Contract Changes” available free to members.
