Providing managed care guidance and support to healthcare providers has given me an appreciation for the direct impact that negotiated payor contracts have on an organization’s success. Providers can extend their financial independence and longevity if they’re intelligently working with payors to shape reimbursements that anticipate current and future cost trends. I truly enjoy helping providers navigate this process.
