Managed Care and Reimbursement

Our payer contracting and reimbursement experts help clients understand their payer market, current contracts, and reimbursement opportunities, and our team provides negotiation support.

Managed Care and Reimbursement

As outpatient services continue migrating to the ASC setting and payer challenges persist, it has become essential for healthcare providers to optimize payer revenue through the restructuring of contracts that allow eligible surgery to move to lower-cost, high-quality care settings. ECG’s ASC team works with all provider types, with an emphasis on independent ASCs, hospital ASC JVs, surgical hospitals, OBLs, and physician practices. Our experts have decades of experience with payer contracting and reimbursement modeling and a comprehensive understanding of complex payment systems, enabling us to help our clients understand their payer market, current contracts, and reimbursement opportunities.
